  • Volume 24 Issue 2 - Trump's hair raising higher ed agenda
    • Abstract: MacDonald, Andrew
      Suggestions of Russian interference, military posturing, a sacked FBI Director's testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee and speculation about 'secret tapes'. Given these are among the dramas which have beset the presidency of Donald Trump, it is perhaps understandable that the international media has been kept enthralled by plotlines which wouldn't be out of place in a spy thriller. Yet while the Administration's higher profile scandals have hogged most of the headlines, the implementation of President Trump's agenda domestically has also caused some concern, including in relation higher education.

  • Volume 24 Issue 2 - News from the net: Twitterography
    • Abstract: Wright, Pat
      Hardly a week goes by that some elderly sage doesn't condemn social media for shrinking the brains of the young. Twitter comes in for more than its fair share of the criticism because of its apparent limit to 140 characters - almost as though multiple tweets and embedded links to webpage documents and images were not possible. True, a single, isolated tweet requires a very short attention-span, but to blame Twitter for shrinking attention-spans in Millenials puts the cart before the horse and misconstrues the way in which Twitter is best used.

    • Abstract: Lyons, Kristen; Hil, Richard
      The Federal Government's proposed $2.8 billion cut to higher education over four years is part of its calculated and ongoing attempts to privatise the sector. In championing the neoliberal maxim of privatising profits and socialising losses, the Government is driving the transfer of costs for education from the state to the "consumer".

      There will be no pay bonus for University of Canberra (UC) staff this year, according to UC's Vice-Chancellor Deep Saini. In an email in June, Professor Saini announced that UC had achieved a $4.1 million dollar surplus in the 2016 financial year, but that this was not enough to trigger the pay bonus.

    • Abstract: Kniest, Paul
      When the Minister for Education and Training, Simon Birmingham, released the Government's latest package of higher education policies on 1 May 2017, he wanted everyone listening to be in no doubt that he was abandoning many of zombie measures that the Senate had refused to pass over the last three years. He emphasised that he understood that stakeholders (Vice-Chancellors aside) and the broader community had thoroughly rejected the radical deregulatory policy agenda of his predecessor, Christopher "the Fixer" Pyne, and that he was starting from a "clean slate". The Minister said he believed, presumably in contrast to those of Pyne, that his set of "reforms" were "fair, reasonable and necessary".

This follows their unsuccessful application to the Federal Court for an injunction against the Union and two officials. Murdoch are continuing with their case against NTEU and the officials that alleges misrepresentation of management's position in various communications with Union members about bargaining.

And as if by pure serendipity, it turns out that our Vice-Chancellors' pay is the one thing that puts Australia on the top of world university league tables. The average level of remuneration for the leaders of Australia's Group of Eight research intensive universities was over $1 million and the average for all Vice-Chancellors was $860,000.
