The undergraduate experience: focusing institutions on what matters most

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Change, challenge and opportunity are the common phenomena in the higher education

    sector. In the current era, there is a wide range of student demographics, changing pedagogies,

    advances in technology, an increasingly diversified academic workforce and various other

    impacts arising from globalisation that are both social and economic. Within these contexts,

    institutional leaders are required to remain focused on the mission to promote student learning

    through the provision of a quality student experience. This book explores what matters

    most, aimed at inspiring university leaders to stay true to this mission and protect priorities

    in an environment where workloads are high and funding is low.
