The Parlous State of Academia: When Politics, Prestige and Proxies Overtake Higher Education's Teaching Mission
Callier, Viviane; Singiser, Richard H.; Vanderford, Nathan L.
Australian Universities' Review, v57 n1 p13-16 2015
Original and significant research benefits the careers of those running universities and brings prestige to their institution. World class teaching, by and large, does not, and this has important consequences for higher education's tripartite mission. Most notably, emphasis on the research mission of major higher education institutions dwarfs that of the teaching mission and this is to the detriment of teachers and students. Policy interventions are needed to address this discrepancy.
