Normality at Australian universities unlikely to return before 2024 with accumulated losses of at least $13-15 billion | Campus Morning Mail

Normality at Australian universities unlikely to return before 2024 with accumulated losses of at least $13-15 billion | Campus Morning Mail | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The fact that Australian Universities are facing long-lasting financial and academic stresses has been highlighted in an earlier article .

Universities Australia has now estimated a revenue shortfall across the sector of between $3 – 4.5 billion for 2020. The larger Group of Eight universities are severally estimating revenue losses of between $200 – $600 million. Beyond 2020, how long will this COVID-19 crisis last and what will be the financial costs to Australian universities? These are two key questions that must currently be focusing the minds of government education planners and university leaders.

The work of teaching is hard. And much of the work is unexamined, exactly because the work is so precarious—because many teachers are not given the space or the support they need to improvise and experiment in their classes.

100 learning theorists – Learning through the ages | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Edtech entrepreneur Donald Clark knows his education theory, and has written a highly readable series of short articles about 100* key educational thinkers, ranging from ancient philosophers to modern-day pedagogists and innovators.

It’s a hugely valuable resource and a great way for history of education newbies to dip their toes into two-and-a-half thousand years of human thought about how we learn.

The three levers Canberra can pull to help Australian universities | Campus Morning Mail

The three levers Canberra can pull to help Australian universities | Campus Morning Mail | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
In the previous article we forecast the financial impact of COVID-19 on Australian universities would last for several years and conservatively result in a $13- 15 billion loss of revenue. We indicated that the decline in international student fee income would be the key factor generating this outcome. The Mitchell Institute using broader assumptions has estimated that accumulated losses could be higher – up to $19 billion by 2023.

Some actions that the Australian Government might consider in responding to this decline in income are discussed here.

The Australian higher education sector lacks a cohesive and comprehensive policy framework. One consequence is that there are few reference points or national goals against which the implications of such a decline in revenue can be assessed.

No room for you in lectures, top universities tell first-year students | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
‘Desperate’ institutions offer overflow rooms and YouTube live streams instead of a seat in front of a lecturer
Peter Mellow's insight:
Or, if you continue to lecture to students, why not run two lectures instead of one so all students can attend, get a seat and participate? Seems like it is giving students a bad experience in the hope of some dropping out, while the Uni pockets their fees. Education, the student, and learning are not the winners.
