The Challenges and Opportunities for Professional Societies in Higher Education in Australasia: A PEST Analysis
Doherty, Iain; Steel, Caroline; Parrish, Dominique
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v28 n1 p105-121 2012
Professional societies, established to support academic and professional staff in higher education, need to be vigilant of regional and international trends that affect their core business. In this paper, we provide an analysis of political, economic, social and technological factors that are impacting upon the Australasian higher education environment through considering the case of the Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education (ascilite). Drawing on two ascilite membership surveys along with the relevant literature we identify significant challenges for professional societies and offer some strategic insights for similar regional societies and their executive teams.
