Review of External Studies: Post Secondary Education External Studies Opportunities in Western Australia.
Western Australia Post Secondary Education Commission, Nedlands.
A review of external studies in Western Australia was undertaken, with attention directed to the future pattern of development, including the institutions to be involved and the nature of their involvement. A continued demand has been exhibited for external studies opportunities, and there is a trend to expand and refine existing offerings rather than introduce new fields or major new approaches. In addition, business studies and teacher education are areas that need monitoring. Other need areas include: better articulation within the postsecondary education system--between courses and institutions; more flexible study packages providing for on-campus and off-campus study during the academic year and in vacation periods; improved academic support for students, including counseling, tutoring, and library and study facilities; and more flexible course structures. The specific external studies programs of the following institutions are also examined: Murdoch University, Western Australian College, Western Australian Institute of Technology, Pilbara Colleges, and the University of Western Australia. Possible approaches for increased coordination are noted. (SW)
