Buchanan, John – Australian Universities' Review, 2011
The pursuit of enhancing quality in tertiary education and educators is noble.

This paper questions the validity and reliability of such…

This may be productive in…

Chubb, Ian – Australian Universities' Review, 2007
It's become a truism that Australian higher education nowadays is in a state of perpetual change. The next round of changes to research and teaching funding, however, will permanently alter the face of the sector. We asked five of Australia's most prominent Vice-Chancellors to anticipate the future face of higher education. NTEU's Carolyn Allport…

Neumann, Ruth – Australian Universities' Review, 1994
It is argued that despite the current view of college teaching as a discrete set of skills, good teaching is more complex and involves understanding the specific contexts in which teaching occurs, and how teachers understand and communicate concepts to a changing student population. Portfolio-based peer assessment of college teachers is…

Becher, Tony – Australian Universities' Review, 1994
It is argued that university policies and procedures concerning assurance of quality education are framed with little regard for significant differences among disciplines, and that some common approaches to assuring academic quality impinge on some aspects of research, undergraduate teaching, and graduate work. Focus is on England and Australia.…
