    • Abstract: Hartley, Lisa; Baker, Sally; Fleay, Caroline; Burke, Rachel
      People seeking asylum in Australia face complex and significant barriers accessing higher education. Due to the temporary nature of their visa, their only pathway to university is being granted admission as an international student, which is financially prohibitive. This paper focuses on the lived experience of people seeking asylum with regard to accessing higher education, and identifies six major themes: the importance of accessing studies; the stress of struggling to meet living expenses while studying; mental health issues; support for people with disabilities, health challenges, and family responsibilities; the importance of language support and navigational brokers; and the role of higher education in the settlement of people seeking asylum. The research indicates that more university and community support is needed to foster access and participation, but the priority should be on addressing the Australian Federal Government policies that underpin the most significant barriers facing people seeking asylum in accessing higher education. This recommendation is most pressing in light of the re-election of the Coalition Government in May 2019, which has committed to continue these restrictive policies.

  • Volume 61 Issue 2 - W(h)ither the honours degree in Australian
           universities'
    • Abstract: Horstmanshof, Louise; Boyd, Bill
      Australian universities offer diverse approaches to bachelor's (honours) degrees as a means of dealing with a range of contemporary demands. These demands include responding to (i) the Bologna Declaration, (ii) tensions between the conventional role for honours as a PhD pathway and an emerging role for honours as professional development, and (iii) the rigid Commonwealth funding model for honours. Benchmarking of honours across the Australian higher education sector remains problematic, much as it did in the 2009 Australian Learning and Teaching Council review of Australian honours programs. Little research into honours degrees has been done since that review. Nevertheless, while honours degrees continue as a pathway to higher degree research, other modes of honours and other programs (e.g. master's) vie for equivalent status in the Australian higher education sector, each seeking to adapt to professional development and accreditation education demands. These shifts raise questions about the role of honours in Australian higher education, hence our question, 'W(h)ither the honours degree in Australian universities''

  • Volume 61 Issue 2 - Examiner feedback and Australian doctoral examination
           processes
    • Abstract: Dally, Kerry; Holbrook, Allyson; Lovat, Terence; Budd, Janene
      Doctoral thesis examination is the litmus test for doctoral quality. Of those candidates who reach examination, most are notified they have more work to do on their thesis. Receiving and responding to feedback are integral parts of a formal learning process that continues until the final thesis is submitted. However, little is known about what happens after examiner reports are received by an institution, how recommendations and feedback are filtered through institutional processes to influence thesis outcomes, or about the roles that candidates and supervisors play in determining and giving action to thesis revisions. This article reports the findings from a desktop review of institutional protocols and policies governing doctoral thesis examination in Australian universities. Given that the PhD Viva, or oral examination, is rare in Australian universities, the authors question whether current examination processes allow adequate opportunities for candidates to actively engage with examiner feedback and take advantage of this final opportunity to demonstrate, or further develop, authoritative judgement and research autonomy.

  • Volume 61 Issue 2 - Academic administration and service workloads in
           Australian universities
    • Abstract: Kenny, John; Fluck, Andrew
      This paper addresses the important and linked questions of how to manage academic performance and workload effectively. It highlights the need in a modern, corporatised university to consider the nature of academic work and optimal ways to develop workload allocation and performance management processes. This paper complements two previous papers on time associated with teaching and research components of academic work by exploring service/administration workloads. Data were collected from 665 academics with recent administration experience through a nation-wide survey in 2016 and 2018. The data were analysed to understand the median annual work hours for a range of internal and external service activities, and for a range of formal administrative roles. The analysis showed a further categorisation of academic service into operational and strategic activities. Together, the three papers underpin holistic academic workload model development using empirical annual hour allocations from a large and representative national sample of academics. This article provides an essential basis for any future consideration of performance assessment based on output measures such as research expectations, impact or quality.

  • Volume 61 Issue 2 - Engagement and impact through 'amplifier platforms'
    • 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. As public debate is conducted more through social and digital media, alternative metrics ('altmetrics') that are generated from social and digital media platforms become important as indicators of impact and engagement. We review the growth of amplifier platforms and the academic and contextual reasons for their growth. Amplifier platforms are defined to distinguish them from traditional media outlets (where the scholarly voice is mediated through and 'gatekept' by journalists, whose editors retain final control), personal blogs (very few of which can be maintained over time) and from social media platforms (where the scholarly voice is accorded no presumptive standing). A significant range of amplifier platforms is canvassed while acknowledging that in Australia, the amplifier platform 'The Conversation' plays a central role.

  • Volume 61 Issue 2 - More work for less reward: Academic perceptions of
           service teaching
    • Abstract: Clifton, Delma; McKillup, Steve
      Service teaching, through which core courses or modules are provided by a department other than the one administering the degree, occurs in universities worldwide, but there have been many reports of student dissatisfaction with their service-taught courses. The experiences of service teachers have received little attention and may help to suggest strategies for improvement, so we surveyed service and discipline teachers from the science departments/faculties at Australian universities for their perceptions of the difficulty, the effect on the likelihood of promotion, and qualifications needed, for each type of teaching. Both service and discipline teachers perceived service teaching to be significantly more difficult, yet significantly less valuable for promotion, than discipline teaching. More research is needed to investigate whether these perceptions reflect the realities of service teaching because, if they do, they will have implications for university policies and workload models.

  • Volume 61 Issue 2 - Three cheers for the Ramsay centre
    • Abstract: Davies, Martin
      In 2018 Australia's leading national university, the ANU, decided to break off consultation with the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation over a generous bequest to fund a course on Western civilisation. It is not every day that a university decides to turn down a $3 billion bequest to fund a humanities program (Groch, 2018). In these straitened times this seems a very regrettable decision indeed.

  • Volume 61 Issue 2 - 'Continuous improvement' in higher education: Response
           to 'neoliberalism and new public management in an Australian university:
           The invisibility of our take-over' by Margaret Sims (2019)
    • Abstract: Mitchell, Cat
      It is difficult to overestimate the reach of neoliberalism across social, cultural and political life, including in higher education. Margaret Sims (2019) makes this apparent in her examination of the impacts of neoliberal rationalities on an Australian university based on her experience as a senior academic. Her account is a resonant one, with much in her text speaking directly to the higher education situation in Aotearoa/New Zealand. In this response, I seek to pick up one of the threads in Sim's article, specifically her comments about the demands on academic staff for continuous improvement. This is a discourse that is brought to bear in a complex matrix of measures to enable the audit, evaluation and close control of academic work in pursuance of the neoliberal focus on efficiency (Olssen and Peters, 2005).

           'Australia's fulbright', the Endeavour program
    • Abstract: Barker, Joanne
      In April 2019, the Australian Government's well-regarded Endeavour Leadership Program was quietly scuttled. Since 2003, the Endeavour program (previously known as the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships program) had supported Australian postgraduate students, researchers and career professionals to study overseas. It also brought talented international scholars and fellows to Australia from all over the world. On the data available for the past 12 years, about 2000 Australians and 4500 foreign nationals were the recipients of Endeavour awards.

           attempt at historical perspective: A reaction to Martin Davies' paper
           (this issue)
    • Abstract: Bonnell, Andrew G
      Martin Davies' paper seeks to vindicate the efforts of the Ramsay Centre to fund courses in 'Western Civilisation' at selected Australian universities. He begins by lamenting the rejection of vast amounts of philanthropic money for the humanities, and all too quickly dismisses the stated grounds for the Australian National University's decision to decline a deal with the Ramsay Centre: 'The issue of academic autonomy has been raised as a reason, but this is, at best, ostensible', Davies writes. He then goes on to defend the concept of courses in Western civilisation more generally.

  • Volume 61 Issue 1 - Economics, education and citizenship
    • Abstract: Obeng-Odoom, Franklin
      In the current political economic dispensation, it is important to revisit the opportunities for citizenship, cooperative, and public economics and the responsibility of economics teachers. In doing so, it is essential to analyse the nature of the dominant pedagogical philosophy of individualism, probe what alternatives could be embraced, investigate whether citizenship is a superior compass, and ascertain how students respond to alternatives. The case study reported in this paper demonstrates not only that individualism is problematic but also that citizenship, public and cooperative economics have much prospect of success. Students who are enrolled in economics subjects could show substantial awareness of social justice and, based on their own account, that awareness could be increased. Overall, students appreciate the opportunity to challenge the status quo. If so, citizenship and cooperative economics have a place in the study of economics - contrary to the widely held view that they are irrelevant. It is the responsibility of teachers to expose the ideology of this impossibility view, emphasise the possibilities for cooperative economics and citizenship, and empower students to question and become citizens.

      The higher education sector in Australia is operating in an ideological context in which the ideas of managerialism and neoliberalism combine to create a discourse shaping the lives of both workers and students. The practices that emerge inside higher education organisations as a result combine to form an organisational neoliberal managerial culture that shapes practices, operating in a vicious cycle. In this vicious cycle, managers set the organisational culture through the roles they take on in this figured world, leading to particular ways of behaving and engaging in the practice of management. These experiences are received and internalised by their recipients who come to believe their reality reflects the only way things operate. In this paper I take an autoethnographic approach to reflect on my experiences of the practices emerging from this culture as I have experienced them within one higher education organisation in Australia. I argue that we are seeing the operationalisation of a discourse of managerial privilege that, in the long term, is not only detrimental to the functioning of higher educational organisations but puts at risk the wellbeing of the nation through its impact on both staff and students.

  • Volume 61 Issue 1 - Doctoral supervisory quality from the perspective of
           senior academic managers
    • Abstract: Kiley, Margaret
      It has been suggested in the literature that the relationship with a doctoral supervisor is the predominant factor in student decisions to continue or withdraw from their candidatures. However, anecdotally it is not uncommon to hear heads of department, faculty deans and those in similar positions say that they know who the poorly-performing doctoral supervisors are, but often they are not sure what they, or others can do to remedy the situation. This study is based on interviews with 34 senior staff in order to understand how they identified supervisors who they generally considered less than ideal in the way they supervised doctoral candidates. This was followed by how they addressed, often, the multiple issues involved. The results provide helpful insights for staff in leadership positions as well as those whose role it is to support doctoral education, and particularly candidates and supervisors.

  • Volume 61 Issue 1 - The Kantian University: Worldwide Triumph and growing
           insecurity
    • Abstract: Marginson, Simon
      How might we think about that institution called 'the University', at home and across the world' Because something like the institution we know is now found in every part of the world, and there are identifiable commonalities everywhere. Are the small quiet foundations of the University in Europe still relevant' What kind of institution has the University become'

  • Volume 61 Issue 1 - Silencing behaviours in contested research and their
           implications for academic freedom
    • Abstract: Hoepner, Jacqui
      What do attacks on 'unpalatable' research reveal about academic freedom' When academic work is curtailed, this cherished yet misunderstood concept is undermined. Silencing based on moral objection - rather than wrongdoing - suggests academic freedom is more constrained than we believe. On paper, academic freedom is rule-bound, yet 'dangerous' ideas produce overwhelmingly visceral reactions. It was these emotional responses I examined to explore the difference between what we believe academic freedom to be, and how it manifests in contentious fields. I conducted qualitative interviews with 18 researchers whose work elicited condemnation or constraint beyond 'legitimate' scholarly critique. I used mixed-methods data analysis to determine shared themes and characteristics. While academic institutions uphold their commitment to unfettered enquiry, 'academic freedom' is highly contingent and subject to the values of players in a range of disciplinary and institutional fields that together yield a generalised field of 'academic research'. This research challenges assumptions about 'freedom' by identifying parameters that bound the notion. I argue the concept is indeed bounded, and that academics become aware of those bounds when they bump up - often unexpectedly - against them.

  • Volume 61 Issue 1 - Whose future': Or why we need to think more
           expansively about the future of Australian higher education
    • Abstract: Hil, Richard
      Future gazing has become something of a hobby among higher education boffins. It's more head-scratching than staring into the tea leaves and crystal balls, but the thinking caps are definitely on - well; sort of.

  • Volume 61 Issue 1 - Free speech on Australian campuses: Hidden barriers
    • Abstract: Martin, Brian
      Speech at Australian universities is restricted in various ways. A few of them, such as student protests against visiting speakers, receive lots of attention. Others seldom do, such as defamation threats and cyber harassment. Self-censorship may be more significant than overt censorship. Those who want to raise awareness of hidden limitations on speech can learn from the methods used to raise the alarm about student protests.

  • Volume 61 Issue 1 - Publications, citations and impact factors: Myth and
           reality
    • Abstract: Nathan, Robert Jeyakumar; Shawkataly, Omar bin
      This article discusses the role of university academics as researchers. In present-day society which touts instant gratification, the primary role of a university is being undermined. In Malaysia, academics no longer teach and research as they please but are 'guided' by government agencies and influenced by the priorities of funding agencies. One of the components of academic freedom is the freedom to publish. Academics publish research that pushes the boundaries of knowledge. They choose journals in which their articles will be peer-reviewed, published and read by the communities of interest. However, lately many academics tend to publish in journals based on rankings, in journals reputed to have higher impact than others. Often young academics are puzzled whether they should publish where it matters or where it would quickly boost the key performance indicators (KPIs) set by the university. This article highlights some of these struggles in modern academia and exposes several examples of academic misconduct.

  • Volume 61 Issue 1 - Unveiling opportunities for hope: Is it too much to
           ask for a compassionate university'
    • Abstract: Boyd, Bill; Grant, Airdre
      A few years ago, one of us responded, in this journal, to an article by Australian academic Eva Peterson, who had set out to celebrate the joy of an academic career (Boyd and Horstmanshof, 2013). Peterson explored the narratives of the aspirations of research academics as they moved forward in the academy, only to find a tale of woe (Peterson, 2011). There was, found Peterson, a malaise in the university. Early career scholars were making choices and expressing aspirations in an atmosphere of, as they understood and experienced it, overwork and undervalue. Instead of exciting career path strategies, Peterson encountered coping strategies and exit strategies. She concluded that policy makers and university managers would do well to listen to the stories of these academics, their narratives, instead of continuing, as she claimed, to dismiss and denigrate them. A grim picture indeed: one that, although the word was not used, lacked compassion.
