  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - Indigenous data sovereignty in higher education:
           Towards a decolonised data quality framework
    • Abstract: Wilks, Judith; Kennedy, Gillian; Drew, Neil; Wilson, Katie
      In the Australian higher education sector, the challenges to successful engagement and retention experienced by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students and communities are considerable. They persist despite many well-intentioned attempts to address this issue and to strengthen equity in participation in the sector. Implicated in this is the absence of a culturally-informed data quality framework for the sector, and the resulting persistence of associated issues such as confusion with data ownership; consistency; standards; usage; and storage. In this paper we argue it is essential that rigorous inquiry be carried out into the type and nature of data required or sought in the higher education sector on, for and with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This inquiry must involve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander educators, researchers, evaluators and communities to bring into effect their aspirations for data sovereignty including stewardship and ownership of data, and for culturally beneficial outcomes relating to the use and application of data. It also mandates a collaborative approach with existing government and independent organisations, and Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers from higher education institutions, working together towards the development and implementation of an agreed-upon and decolonised Indigenous data framework for the sector.

  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - Wish you were here: Academic supervision of
           international professional experience
    • Abstract: Buchanan, John
      International professional experiences have long been esteemed by universities and pre-service teachers alike. This paper analyses the experiences of six academics who have supervised Australian pre-service teachers undertaking international professional experience (PE), with a view to better understanding the problems and prospects that they encounter during their overseas supervision. The respondents reported concerns about duty of care, blurring of relationship distinctions, and pre-service teachers' and the local supervising teachers' expectations. Using a narrative inquiry approach, this paper examines the interface between visiting academic supervisors or pre-service teachers, and the host culture, against a backdrop of globally normed, Western approaches to pedagogy. The paper also explores implications for support needed for international PE academic supervisors.

  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - Research workloads in Australian universities
    • Abstract: Kenny, John; Fluck, Andrew Edward
      This article provides insight into the nature of research workload allocation for Australian academics. It explores the distinction between research performance and research workload allocation. Research performance can be judged at an institutional level, a work group level or an individual level. The process by which an institution's research performance is judged is not necessarily suitable at the level of the individual academic. The research performance of individual academics is based on their 'research output', in the form of publications, grants or supervision of research students, but historically, little attention has been paid to the 'input' or the time required to achieve these outputs. To determine the real costs of research, and to examine academic working conditions, this paper argues the clear distinction must be made that 'output' is about research performance; whereas 'input' is about research workload allocation. Therefore, what is needed is a suite of reasonable time allocations which can be associated with research activities, as is the case for teaching related activities. The paper analyses data from an online survey, circulated to academics across Australia in 2016, in which staff estimated the typical time spent on a wide range of research related tasks. The findings from the 2059 respondents show staff strongly support a transparent and holistic approach to workload planning which acknowledges the full range of activities they undertake. Analysis of the times associated with the research tasks led to the development of a table of suggested time estimates, based on the median values, for many common research activities.

  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - A historical overview of responses to Indigenous
           higher education policy in the NT: Progress or procrastination'
    • Abstract: Street, Catherine; Smith, James A; Robertson, Kim; Motlap, Shane; Ludwig, Wendy; Gillan, Kevin; Guenther, John
      The number of Indigenous people enrolling in and completing higher education courses in the Northern Territory slowly continues to climb. Since the first policies supporting the Australian Government's self-determination policy that encompassed training of Indigenous teachers in the Northern Territory, Charles Darwin University and Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education have played vital roles in increasing opportunities for Indigenous people to participate and succeed in higher education across all industries. From a policy perspective, these institutions are responsible for implementing Indigenous higher education policies at the local level in order to ensure that practice is guided by policy. Yet, there are other factors at play when considering policy implementation. This paper will provide a historical narrative around the institutional responses to national Indigenous higher education policies and summarise how implementation has often been constrained by parallel economic and socio-political forces.

  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - History revisited: The system before Dawkins
    • Abstract: Rodan, Paul
      Before the creation of the current unified national system of higher education, a binary system had developed, comprising universities and colleges of advanced education (CAEs), the latter emerging in the second half of the 1960s.

  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - Research with former refugees: Moving towards an
           ethics in practice
    • Abstract: Thapliyal, Nisha; Baker, Sally
      Research into issues relating to people from refugee backgrounds has proliferated in line with the explosion in the numbers of people seeking refuge globally. In this think piece, we reflect on what it means to research with former refugees in contexts of resettlement in an academic and social climate dominated by audit culture and austerity politics. Drawing on an interdisciplinary literature and existing institutional ethics standards, we discuss key, often unaddressed, ethical issues which manifest throughout research processes of recruitment, data collection and dissemination. Specifically, we problematise static and decontextualised approaches to engaging with issues of vulnerability, fair selection, informed consent and the burdens and benefits of participation, and point towards the benefits of taking an ethics in practice approach. In doing so, we hope to make a useful contribution to our collective strategic repertoires to carry out ethical research in practice with former refugees.

  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - Mind the cap': Postgraduate coursework degrees and
           tuition fees in Australia
    • Abstract: Palmer, Nigel; Abrahams, Natasha; Pace, Mark; De Rango, Emily
      There has been substantial growth in postgraduate coursework study in Australia since moves towards deregulation began in the early 1990s. This growth in postgraduate coursework education has brought benefits for both institutions and individuals. However, in a deregulated fee environment these benefits now risk being outweighed by the mounting costs of education for those who wish to improve their qualifications. This paper revisits a paper by Smith and Frankland in 2000, regarding the 'marketisation' of postgraduate coursework degrees in Australia and addresses the likely implications of recent proposals for a cap on the combined cumulative fee debt for current and prospective postgraduate coursework students. It finds that many of the predictions made by Smith and Frankland in 2000 have been borne out and that the prospect of limits on cumulative debt from multiple degree programs has the potential to have an impact on increasing numbers of graduates with fee debts well in excess of $100,000.

  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - The benefits and drawbacks of transnational higher
           education: Myths and realities
    • Abstract: Wilkins, Stephen; Juusola, Katariina
      The purpose of this article is to analyse some of the key ongoing debates in transnational higher education (TNHE). First, we discuss a selection of the claimed benefits and drawbacks of TNHE for home and host country stakeholders (students, governments and institutions), and then we suggest alternative realities, for which there appears to be evidence in practice. It is concluded that (1) recent TNHE developments on the provision side act as a counterforce to the spread of neo-colonialism; (2) international branch campus development continues but there is evidence that the forms, motives, and markets of these initiatives are changing; (3) distance/online/MOOC programs do not pose a threat to the sustainability of other forms of TNHE; (4) the majority of TNHE programs are of acceptable quality due to high levels of competition in international higher education markets and increased regulatory demands from quality assurance agencies; and (5) these forces also contribute to students generally being satisfied with their TNHE study experience.

  • Volume 60 Issue 2 - Salary diversity: Australian universities and their
           general staff
    • Abstract: Dobson, Ian R
      This statistical note updates earlier work on the salaries paid to general staff working at Australia's public universities, and the levels at which universities classify those staff. In 2017, higher proportions of general staff in more senior grades could be found at the University of Technology Sydney, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, the University of Canberra, and Monash and Macquarie Universities. Similarly, based on the median salary classification across Australian universities, the universities offering the highest salaries to staff in the median classification were the University of Sydney, the University of New South Wales, Macquarie University, the University of Melbourne and Curtin University of Technology.

  • Volume 60 Issue 1 - Optimising the efficacy of hybrid academic teams:
           Lessons from a systematic review process
    • Abstract: Lake, Warren; Wallin, Margie; Boyd, Bill; Woolcott, Geoff; Markopoulos, Christos; Boyd, Wendy; Foster, Alan
      Undertaking a systematic review can have many benefits, beyond any theoretical or conceptual discoveries pertaining to the underlying research question. This paper explores the value of utilising a hybrid academic team when undertaking the systematic review process, and shares a range of practical strategies. The paper also comments on how such a hybrid team sits in a continuum of cooperation, coordination and collaboration. Key recommendations include choosing a great team, communicating well, documenting everything, and being explicit - for the benefit of your research team, and the readers of your systematic review.

  • Volume 60 Issue 1 - Measuring research impact in Australia
    • Abstract: Gunn, Andrew; Mintrom, Michael
      The implementation of the national Research Engagement and Impact Assessment in Australia provides a timely opportunity to review attempts to improve the non-academic impact of academic research. The impact agenda represents a new phase in academic research evaluation and funding, characterised by a heightened need to demonstrate a return on public investments in research. New imperatives seek the reorientation of some academic research towards more directly driving national innovation, meeting the needs of business, and contributing to improved social and economic outcomes. This paper reviews the policy journey of research impact in Australia from the proposed, but never implemented, Research Quality Framework (RQF) to the National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA). Our analysis of policy developments from the Howard to the Turnbull Governments highlights the controversial nature of research impact assessment and the political and methodological challenges that have accompanied its implementation.

  • Volume 60 Issue 1 - Participating in a study-abroad program: Concerns and
           hopes of intending international students
    • Abstract: Lovett, Trevor
      This small-scale narrative investigation identifies not only the concerns but also the hopes of undergraduate psychology students from a southwest Chinese university who are about to embark on a program of study abroad. While past research has tended to focus on the anticipated negative experiences international students are likely to encounter, this study enabled students to express both their hopes as well as apprehensions in regard to the intended overseas experience. Although the data confirmed a number of findings from previous studies they also revealed that the students' thinking is not preoccupied with the academic side of the impending study. Positive and enduring friendships are something many of the respondents expect to develop. However, a further review of the literature indicated that current attitudes and practices towards international students in Australia may restrict the participants in this research from realising those goals.

  • Volume 60 Issue 1 - An oral component in PhD examination in Australia:
           Issues and considerations
    • Abstract: Kiley, Margaret; Holbrook, Allyson; Lovat, Terence; Fairbairn, Hedy; Starfield, Sue; Paltridge, Brian
      While there has been considerable research on doctoral examination there is little that examines the various roles of the oral component and what issues one might consider if introducing or revising that aspect of the thesis examination process. This matter is of particular importance in Australia where it is not usual to have an oral component as part of the final assessment. However, there are a number of Australian institutions considering the introduction of an oral component. This paper, based on the literature and three research projects initiated by the Centre for the Study of Research Training and Impact (SORTI) at The University of Newcastle, Australia, addresses a number of the key issues that would need to be addressed if an Australian institution were to introduce an oral component to the doctoral thesis examination process.

  • Volume 60 Issue 1 - Dress codes and the academic conference: Mcculloch's
           iron laws of conferences
    • Abstract: McCulloch, Alistair
      Despite being a staple of academic life (or perhaps because it is so taken-for-granted), the academic conference has been generally under-utilised as a site for academic research. Using participant observation as its methodology, this article draws on a long career of conference attendance to present two iron laws of conferences which address the relative smartness of dress of conference convenors and conference delegates. The social processes underpinning the sartorial phenomenon addressed by these laws are explicated. A third law is also introduced in a desperate attempt on the part of the author to secure the immortality sought by all who make their thoughts public by publishing them in academic journals.

  • Volume 60 Issue 1 - Promoting learning: What universities don't do
    • Abstract: Martin, Brian
      Universities seek to promote student learning, but assessment and credentials can undermine students' intrinsic motivation to learn. Findings from research on how people learn, mindsets, expert performance and good health are seldom incorporated into the way universities organise learning experiences.

  • Volume 60 Issue 1 - Alternative pathways into university: Are tertiary
           preparation programs a viable option'
    • Abstract: Chesters, Jenny; Rutter, Kerry; Nelson, Karen; Watson, Louise
      During the past three decades, the student populations of Australian universities have become more heterogeneous as the higher education sector expanded and new alternative entry pathways were established. Broadening access to university study and, therefore, to professional and semi-professional occupations, provides avenues for social mobility. In this paper, we examine whether students entering university via alternative entry pathways, and in particular, on-campus tertiary preparation programs, have similar levels of achievement and attainment as students who entered via the more traditional pathway after completing Year 12. Our analysis is conducted on data from one regional university and our results show that students who were not eligible to enrol on the basis of their secondary school results were no more likely than traditional students to discontinue their studies.

  • Volume 60 Issue 1 - Developing a sustainable academic workforce in
           paramedicine
    • Abstract: O'Meara, Peter; Maguire, Brian
      Paramedics are an integral part of the Australian healthcare system and are increasingly requested to provide a growing array of services in support of improved community health. Currently there are over 6,000 undergraduate paramedic students. A pressing challenge is the development and sustainability of a dedicated group of university paramedic academics. Urgent action is needed to: develop reliable sources of research funding; create smooth pathways for paramedic clinicians into academia; and, develop effective coalitions between ambulance agencies, paramedic professional groups and universities to ensure a sufficient number of paramedic academics are available to meet the educational needs of the profession.
