Reading more from the Higher Education Chronicle. It seems that smaller colleges in the US are trying to market their institutions as a reasonable cost option compared to their competition. They are not just reducing the cost, but also the financial aid packages students can get. I suppose with the age of MOOCs some colleges and universities may see the reducing of student fees better than going out of business as those with similar services but higher costs will loose out to MOOCs. Maybe, maybe not? We will see in the future.
Great to see politicans getting involved in the Nation Skin Cancer Week. Both Chief Minister Katy Gallagher and the Liberal Member for Molonglo fronted up to the media this morning to have their skin checked by Dr Miller and Dr Drummond and to address the importance of sun protection and knowing your skin.
Over 40,000 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer in the next three years. That’s a frightening statistic, and there is only one thing I can’t help but wonder… how many will be picked up too late?
A Chronicle survey reveals that football teams' medical staffers often pay a career price if they want more recovery time for players than coaches do.
Raph Allwright's insight:
Caught up with this article from the Higher Education Chronicle, and I can see how stuffed many in sports have become. The US college athletes do not get paid a cent, yet have scholarships etc… You could say, they are used for the colleges they represent to earn more money. Hmm, I seem to remember school boys and girls in Australian private schools doing the same. Being made to play sport when they were injured, or having to take drugs to continue or lose their scholarships. Oh, how you look back as see parallels, twenty years down the track.
