  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - The challenge for law schools of satisfying multiple
           masters
    • Abstract: Thornton, Margaret
      University law schools have been beset with a sense of schizophrenia ever since first established in the 19th century. They were unsure as to whether they were free to teach and research in the same way as the humanities or whether they were constrained by the presuppositions of legal practice. More recently, this tension has been overshadowed by the impact of the neoliberal turn and disinvestment by the state in higher education. Ironically, as government has provided less money to universities, it has arrogated to itself increased control over teaching standards and research productivity. At the same time, the mastery of the legal profession continues to be exercised through the specification of 11 subjects required for admission to legal practice, known as the 'Priestley 11'. Drawing on Foucault's idea of the self as a kind of enterprise, it is argued that law students have also assumed an element of mastery over what is taught and how it is taught. It is suggested that all elements of mastery are imbricated with one another so as to reify enterprise and capital accumulation within the neoliberal economy.

  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - The elusive siloed subjects: Sacrificing humanities to
           Techno-Tehan
    • Abstract: Daly, Jim
      This article questions the use of the term 'siloed' to describe certain degrees or subjects in the Australian university curriculum. Education Minister Dan Tehan used the term as part of a justification of a re-set of funding priorities for university education from 2021 which he announced in June 2020. The Minister partly turned his argument on the floating of an impression that humanities degrees are 'siloed'. They or, more specifically, units within them, would become more expensive for students since 'job readiness' needs to be prioritised. The author analyses the term, its uses and applications to fields of knowledge, and concludes that such a term is neither accurate nor useful. He suggests that focusing on needs arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic might provide a less conflicted and future-oriented way of thinking about the problem rather than making superficial judgments of the merits of particular undergraduate degrees as a foundation for dictating education and education funding policy.

  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - Student experience at international branch campuses
    • Abstract: Wilkins, Stephen
      Many higher education institutions now have offshore campuses in foreign countries. To attract students in the host country, these international branch campuses typically rely on the parent institution and home country higher education system reputations. Institutions that operate international branch campuses typically claim that the student experience at the offshore campus replicates the onshore home campus experience. Such claims are made even though the majority of offshore campuses lack the scale or financial strength needed to invest in physical infrastructure and resources. This article is a consideration of the extent to which claims of replicability may be true. It is concluded that although institution claims of replicability between onshore and offshore student experience may be somewhat fanciful, it may be reasonable to judge the offshore experience as largely comparable, particularly at the larger branch campuses.

    • Abstract: Wilks, Judith; Dwyer, Anna; Wooltorton, Sandra; Guenther, John
      'First know your students', is a well-known saying in teaching. But do Australian universities really know their students' In this paper we present findings from research conducted in remote and very remote Australia where Aboriginal higher education students and educators were asked about their learning and teaching needs, and their views on things the sector could do to better support them in their journey into and through university. They shared with us experiences and thoughts about their ways of learning in face-to-face and online contexts, in particular the role of cultural security; community partnerships; Aboriginal knowledges; pathways and transitions; and student assessment and support strategies. The depth and richness of the skills, knowledges, and capacities of Aboriginal learners, and indeed of the communities in which they reside and study are vital foundations for participation, retention and completion. However, respondents related that in the main, these attributes are not acknowledged by metropolitan-based course designers nor university administrations. We conclude that learning experiences and university operations that are designed to embrace these students' strengths and to work in and with their communities, are more likely to retain Aboriginal students and facilitate their participation and success, enabling beneficial outcomes for all university students and ultimately society as a whole.

  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - Behind voluntary redundancy in universities: The
           stories behind the story
    • Abstract: Andrew, Martin
      At a time when universities internationally participate in continual processes of restructuring, repositioning and reprioritising, calls for 'voluntary' redundancy among teaching and learning staff become frequent events. Australian and New Zealand academics, whose stories inform this study, have, particularly, been made subject to severance, voluntary or otherwise, at a time when the modernised university has become the managed, neoliberalised university and, over time, the 'ruined' or 'toxic' university. This study is a narrative enquiry aiming to capture, re-present and examine the stories of mid- and late-career higher education teaching professionals during this unsettling period of disturbance and flux. In the light of studies on 'voluntary' redundancy and scholarship critiquing the mechanisms of power and repression of the corporatised university, this researcher asked 12 mid-career academics why they really took redundancy packages with a view to exposing the experienced truth behind the official institutional story that academic professionals 'chose' voluntary redundancy packages.

When he was asking me about my teaching and research interests, he said that he would give me some advice - the trick is to 'get famous'.

  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - Change and continuity in Australian doctoral
           education: PhD completion rates and times (2005-2018)
    • Abstract: Torka, Marc
      Australia is following a global trend in doctoral education policy to improve PhD completion times and rates. It is widely believed that accurate data on PhD completion are needed to assess the success of reforms and drive changes in doctoral education. In this article, new national completion data (2005-2018) provided by the Australian Department of Education and Training (DET) have been employed to examine changes and continuities in the Australian doctoral education system. The findings demonstrate that Australian completion rates and times have changed only slightly over time, exceed normative expectations and systematically differ by student characteristics, disciplines and institutions. The article suggests that better completions data are needed to guide detailed research into the structural conditions that determine completion. This knowledge would help to base future reforms on evidence rather than normative expectations and to realign expected with actual completion times and rates.

  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - Is mindfulness a useful next trend in doctoral
           supervision'
    • Abstract: Buirski, Nicolette
      A review of the trends in doctoral education reveals that the focus has been on what supervisors should do in supervision and very little on ways of being in the supervisory relationship. A new direction for doctoral supervision foregrounds the importance of mindfulness traits that well-regarded supervisors embody in their highly valued relationships with candidates, that tacitly establish rapport and create a supportive interpersonal environment that is conducive to the candidate's intellectual insightfulness and developing scholarly identity. These traits are capable of being learned by supervisors, regardless of the disciplinary setting, and may inform the professional development of doctoral supervisors.

  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - Barriers and facilitators for women academics seeking
           promotion: Perspectives from the Inside
    • Abstract: Francis, Lyn; Stulz, Virginia
      In this paper, we discuss findings from a research project in which barriers to and facilitators for promotion with women academics were explored. Four focus groups of women academics at an Australian university were held. Data including responses to semi-structured questions were analysed and interpreted using coding and thematic analysis. We found that multiple barriers and facilitators still exist in the university sector for women applying for promotion, covering structural, organisational, and individual levels. The barriers for promotion included workloads and huge expectations, the multi-pronged promotion process, competition, not being valued, juggling family life and not wanting to risk happiness. Facilitators for promotion included mentoring and collaborative nurturing, giving back to others including the university and flexibility.

  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - Post-COVID Australian universities: The need for a new
           teaching and research vision
    • Abstract: Birrell, Bob
      Australian universities have used the revenue from overseas student fees to enhance their international research standing. COVID-19 has undermined this business model. A new strategy is required, based on the universities' contribution to making Australian industry more self-reliant. This outcome will require a national industry policy, such as has been successfully pursued in Israel. Australia's universities will need to adjust their research activities in order to contribute to this end. The Australian government will have to provide the funds and direction. The universities too, need to embrace this vision.

  • Volume 62 Issue 2 - The degrading of university education: The failure
           from within
    • Abstract: Moore, Tim
      Education Minister Tehan's recent announcement to double the cost of an Arts Degree has been a bombshell like no other in recent higher education policy. Many have rightly seen it as a policy that makes no practical sense - if you want teachers, as is claimed in the overall policy, you of course need a sizeable number of these trained in the humanities. More concerning though, is the perception that the decision is just another dismal episode in the country's never-ending culture wars, where national policy seems to be driven, as much as anything, by a desire to vanquish one's ideological foes - real or imagined.

  • Volume 62 Issue 1 - Losing faith in the classification and evaluation of
           research: A meta-metrics approach to research on religion in Australia
    • Abstract: Possamai, Adam; Long, Gary
      This article uses a meta-metrics approach to research the research in Religion and Religious Studies (Field of Research (FoR) Code 2204) in Australia. Comparing and contrasting various results from the data provided by the Australian Research Council (ARC) on its Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) process, as well as global rankings data, the findings point to a reported drop of quality of research in this field. In this article we argue that this loss of quality could be due to the way this FoR Code is constructed and we call for its revision. This research also points to a considerable disparity between peer review disciplines such as FoR Code 2204 and citation disciplines.

  • Volume 62 Issue 1 - What will follow the international student boom'
    • Abstract: Calderon, Angel
      This paper highlights some of the challenges being faced by Australian higher education which are likely to have an impact over the next ten years and beyond and opportunities to deal with them. In doing so, the policy settings from the Dawkins reforms in the late 1980s to the present which have shaped the higher education landscape are described, bringing into perspective the operating context for Australian universities. Two key themes are discussed: universities' reliance on international students, and demographic shifts. The discussion that follows is how these drivers are likely to shape demand for higher education and what impact these will have on universities over the next ten years.

      In this study, we investigated the extent to which the national classifications of disciplines reflect the organisational structures of Australia's universities. The names of faculty units of ten universities were mapped onto the fields of education set out in the Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED) as well as the fields of research in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC). The results show a fair degree of alignment between the faculty structures and both classification schemes, but also reveal much variation in the degree of alignment amongst the universities sampled. Schools and other second-level units are slightly more aligned to ASCED than to ANZSRC. Several units covering more specific fields are not represented in the current ASCED and ANZSRC classifications, though most non-alignment is due to divergent ways of dividing and compounding broader disciplinary areas. The degree of alignment to the research classification has changed little, overall, since the time of ANZSRC's predecessor, the Australian Standard Research Classification.

  • Volume 62 Issue 1 - Organisational Narratives vs The Lived Neoliberal
           Reality: Tales from a regional university
    • Abstract: Rogers, Marg; Sims, Margaret; Bird, Jo; Elliott, Sue
      Organisational narratives are foundational to inform the actions and directions of an organisation. Modern organisations often place great weight and invest significant time crafting their narratives that are communicated through mission statements, strategic plans, policies, directives and self-promotion. Sometimes these narratives align with the lived reality of the workers and those who deal with the organisation, but at other times there is a significant gap, or even chasm, between the portrayed ideal and the reality. This paper situates such narratives, and the lived experiences within critical organisational theory and a neoliberal framework. Utilising autoethnographic accounts of four academics within a higher education context, it highlights this gap and the need to voice concerns about this misalignment. The paper raises awareness of both organisations and workers to the importance of being true to narratives and ensuring they are an accurate representation of what happens. It offers ideas for resisting the disjunction between narrative and reality and a way of challenging neoliberalism within higher education.

  • Volume 62 Issue 1 - What ongoing staff can do to support precariously
           employed colleagues
    • Abstract: Ford, Jessica; Ison, Jess; McKenzie, Lara; Cannizzo, Fabian; Mayhew, Louise R; Osborne, Natalie; Cooke, Benjamin
      There is a growing divide between ongoing and precarious academics in Australia. Precarious academics are often exploited, underpaid, and have little hope of gaining permanency. In this article we offer suggestions to ongoing academics on how to improve the working lives and conditions of precarious colleagues. Our suggestions range from easy and straightforward to more challenging. We offer them to encourage discussion and action, and to inspire ongoing academics to consider how the circumstances of precarious academics today may differ from their own experiences as 'early career' academics.

  • Volume 62 Issue 1 - Academic clickbait: The arcane art of research article
           titling
    • Abstract: Moore, Tim
      The research is complete, the article written, there's just one last job - think of a great title, one that not only elegantly summarises your research, but that is also going to grab the attention of a fickle and perpetually time-poor readership.

  • Volume 62 Issue 1 - Watch out!: The great university implosion is on its
           way
    • Abstract: Hil, Richard
      With China supposedly undermining our national security and way of life, and causing ructions on university campuses, it's time to take stock of the threat before us. So serious has the situation become that some have called for the equivalent of a dad's army capable of protecting our shores from possible Chinese incursions. (Border security, you see, are still flat out trying to turn back the boats).

  • Volume 62 Issue 1 - 'Amplifier' platforms and impact: Australian scholars'
           use of 'the conversation'
    • Abstract: Osman, Kim; Cunningham, Stuart
      Digital and social media have grown exponentially to become highly influential spheres of public communication - increasingly crowded, contested, and corrupted, and increasingly in need of scholarly engagement. Alternative metrics ('altmetrics') that are generated from social and digital media platforms have become more important as indicators of impact and engagement for scholars. In AUR 61/2, we reviewed the growth of amplifier platforms and the academic and contextual reasons for their growth. In this article, we investigate how scholars frame their practices of engagement and impact, how they use 'amplifier platforms', in particular The Conversation, and to what extent institutions are supporting their staff in these activities. We find that scholars frame engagement and impact as an ethical imperative and place importance on evidence-based messaging; that they are not only interested in seeing their own research amplified, but in amplifying other quality research; that this benefits their other academic activities; that open access models promote republication and increase reach and engagement; and that institutional support for engaging on amplifier platforms is uneven and underdeveloped.

  • Volume 62 Issue 1 - It's all about building a narrative
    • Abstract: O'Neill, Arthur
      Trevor Prout (known behind his back as 'Brussels' to friend and foe alike) had to deliver on a promise. Asked what his priority would be if appointed to the position of Vice-Chancellor, University of Central Tasmania (UCT), he espoused a bold vision: to institute a root-and-branch makeover of the university's image. Beleaguered by northern and southern competitors, the Selection Committee grasped at any straw that would rescue UCT from oblivion in the course of yet another widely-expected round of mergers. Geography counted against continued existence - the usual resort was to put universities together that preyed together; so, Trevor's scheme was to distinguish UCT in such a way as to avoid its capture by a neighbour.
