- 400 000 university students to have their say
Around 400 000 students from 40 universities are set to have their say on core aspects of their university experience, in what will potentially be Australia’s largest ever survey of higher education which opens this week.
The University Experience Survey (UES) is being conducted to help universities and government learn more about students’ experiences at university, and how they can improve teaching and learning.
- Focus on university teaching to maintain student learning standards
University academics need to be prepared for teaching if universities are to maintain high standards during the expansion and diversification of the higher education sector, according to a new book to be launched by ACER.
‘University Teaching in Focus: A learning-centred approach’, co-edited by the University of Western Australia’s Professor Lynne Hunt and Professor Denise Chalmers, will be launched at the conference of the International Consortium for Educational Development (ICED) in Thailand next week.
