How Not to Fund Teaching and Learning
Wheelehan, Leesa
Australian Universities' Review, v49 n1-2 p31-38 Jul 2007
In the increasingly research and innovation-driven landscape of higher education, the Federal Government's Teaching and Learning Fund is supposed to redress the balance. Leesa Wheelehan is unconvinced. She argues the fund simply encourages game-playing between institutions in manipulating their teaching outcomes, and rewards good teaching on grounds that make no statistical or policy sense. (Contains 8 endnotes.)
