Fears some universities may close

Fears some universities may close | Creativity and learning | Scoop.it
Some universities may close as a result of political and financial change in the sector, suggests a survey of senior leaders.

 

The study by a management consulting firm predicts further cuts in public funding to universities. Some 60 senior university leaders from across the UK responded to the survey, around a third of the total.

 

"It is clear that we are witnessing a sea-change in the dynamics of higher education", said co-author Mike Boxall.

 

Declining government grants, limits on undergraduate numbers, higher student fees and cuts to research funding have resulted in a dramatic shift in priorities for university leaders, argues the report by PA Consulting.

 

The authors detect signs of a switch among university leaders away from "their historical obsession with outlook for government policy and funding".

Instead the focus is increasingly "the competitive battle for fee-paying students", with a "new imperative" to offer "attractive and rewarding learning experiences", including better student access to academic staff.

Strategies for Creative Teaching | ROSS LAIRD | Creativity and learning | Scoop.it
Teaching (in its various forms) is one of the most influential roles in society. After parenting, it is perhaps the most crucial, for all ages. And yet, teaching — whether to children or adults — is a profession in which few practitioners have any substantial training. Some instructors have certificates or degrees in teaching, but there’s so much to know about the subject that most good instructors pick up their best skills after training, in the field, thinking on their feet and trying to keep learners awake.
