Davies, Martin – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
In 2018 Australia's leading national university, the Austrailian National University (ANU), decided to break off consultation with the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation over a bequest to fund a course on Western civilisation. It is not every day that a university decides to turn down a $3 billion bequest to fund a humanities program (Groch,…

Hartley, Lisa; Baker, Sally; Fleay, Caroline; Burke, Rachel – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
People seeking asylum in Australia face complex and significant barriers accessing higher education.

Horstmanshof, Louise; Boyd, Bill – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
Australian universities offer diverse approaches to bachelor's (honours) degrees as a means of dealing with a range of contemporary demands. These demands include responding to (i) the Bologna Declaration, (ii) tensions between the conventional role for honours as a PhD pathway and an emerging role for honours as professional development, and…

Dally, Kerry; Holbrook, Allyson; Lovat, Terence; Budd, Janene – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
Doctoral thesis examination is the litmus test for doctoral quality. Of those candidates who reach examination, most are notified they have more work to do on their thesis. Receiving and responding to feedback are integral parts of a formal learning process that continues until the final thesis is submitted. However, little is known about what…

Clifton, Delma; McKillup, Steve – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
Service teaching, through which core courses or modules are provided by a department other than the one administering the degree, occurs in universities worldwide, but there have been many reports of student dissatisfaction with their service-taught courses. The experiences of service teachers have received little attention and may help to suggest…

Barker, Joanne – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
In April 2019, the Australian Government's well-regarded Endeavour Leadership Program was quietly scuttled. Since 2003, the Endeavour program (previously known as the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships program) had supported Australian postgraduate students, researchers and career professionals to study overseas. It also brought talented…

Bonnell, Andrew G. – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
Martin Davies' paper seeks to vindicate the efforts of the Ramsay Centre to fund courses in 'Western Civilisation' at selected Australian universities. He begins by lamenting the rejection of vast amounts of philanthropic money for the humanities, and all too quickly dismisses the stated grounds for the Australian National University's decision to…

Osman, Kim; Cunningham, Stuart – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
Digital and social media have grown exponentially to become highly influential spheres of public communication -- increasingly crowded, contested, and corrupted, and increasingly in need of scholarly engagement. As public debate is conducted more through social and digital media, alternative metrics ('altmetrics') that are generated from social…

Kiley, Margaret – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
It has been suggested in the literature that the relationship with a doctoral supervisor is the predominant factor in student decisions to continue or withdraw from their candidatures. However, anecdotally it is not uncommon to hear heads of department, faculty deans and those in similar positions say that they know who the poorly-performing…

Obeng-Odoom, Franklin – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
In the current political economic dispensation, it is important to revisit the opportunities for citizenship, cooperative, and public economics and the responsibility of economics teachers. In doing so, it is essential to analyse the nature of the dominant pedagogical philosophy of individualism, probe what alternatives could be embraced,…

Hoepner, Jacqui – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
What do attacks on 'unpalatable' research reveal about academic freedom? When academic work is curtailed, this cherished yet misunderstood concept is undermined. Silencing based on moral objection -- rather than wrongdoing -- suggests academic freedom is more constrained than we believe. On paper, academic freedom is rule-bound, yet 'dangerous'…

Martin, Brian – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
Speech at Australian universities is restricted in various ways. A few of them, such as student protests against visiting speakers, receive lots of attention. Others seldom do, such as defamation threats and cyber harassment. Self-censorship may be more significant than overt censorship. Those who want to raise awareness of hidden limitations on…

Marginson, Simon – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
This article discusses the University as an institution in three parts, moving from the abstract to the concrete. The first and longest section begins with the University as a social form or type: what it is, its inner motors, what holds it together; and its outer drivers, what holds it in society. The second section remarks on tendencies in the…

Nathan, Robert Jeyakumar; Shawkataly, Omar Bin – Australian Universities' Review, 2019
This article discusses the role of university academics as researchers. In present-day society which touts instant gratification, the primary role of a university is being undermined. In Malaysia, academics no longer teach and research as they please but are 'guided' by government agencies and influenced by the priorities of funding agencies. One…
