Very pleased to confirm the news that Registrarism is coming home to Wonkhe. It’s not often that this blog appears in the news but together with WonkHE it really is. Almost. Anyway, the blog will soon be moving over to join the WonkHE family and it’s all rather exciting. Here’s the full story:
A new home
The internationally respected higher education blog Registrarism by Dr Paul Greatrix Registrar at The University of Nottingham, is joining forces with Wonkhe. Registrarism, a finalist in the 2013 CIPR Education Journalism Awards, is a widely-read blog that provides the sector with a unique and popular view from a senior administrator on the front-line of higher education management and leadership. Mark Leach, Wonkhe’s Director said “I am delighted that two of the great sites in higher education are joining forces. Registrarism is coming home to the Wonkhe family where it rightly belongs, and where we’ll be able to give it the prominence, sustainability and deep reader engagement that it deserves. Our new partnership also opens up exciting opportunities for joint work that I’m confident the Wonkhe community will love.
”Paul Greatrix said “Registrarism has been a labour of love for many years. I’m excited about the future as things can only get bigger and brighter as part of the Wonkhe community.”
I should stress that no-one has ever described this blog as being “internationally respected” before so I’m certainly not going to complain about that.
And just to say that the response to the announcement (on social media rather than your actual broadsheets admittedly) has been great – thank you.
Looking forward to a very bright future with WonkHE!
Following the incredibly innovative post pretty similar to this last year I thought I would repeat this highly efficient means of listing previous postings. Yes, it’s the list of the most viewed Registrarism posts of 2012 2013! Here we go then…it’s rankings, rankings, China, rankings, MOOCs, my book, true crime, hobbits, leadership puppies, rankings and yet more rankings.
Let’s hope there’s a bit less league table enthusiasm next year. Unlikely though, which possibly explains why this blog continues to avoid the epithet ‘award-winning’.
Given that everyone does this kind of thing at this time of year I thought I would join in this highly efficient means of listing previous postings. Yes, it’s the list of the most viewed Registrarism posts of 2012! Here we go then…it’s rankings, rankings, guns, pets, MOOCs, governance, rankings and yet more rankings all the way.
A rather self-referential ranking this time – a league table of searches
Please do excuse the self-indulgence. Top 20 searches on Registrarism over the past 12 months. Am slightly disturbed that birds, spiders and bagpipes figure quite so prominently. Probably the most pointless ranking around. Or maybe not.

Apologies again for the froth. It is Friday. The good news is that a new, rather more serious, thread starts next week. More to follow.
it’s an online space where higher education professionals can talk to one other, get advice and insight from peers and industry experts and grapple with the challenges that face the whole sector.
With so many changes and challenges facing the sector and its workforce, we feel this is the perfect time to create a place where HE professionals can share their experiences, ideas and even horror stories. We’ve started the ball rolling here with an anonymous blog exposing the less glamorous aspects of international officer’s role – the first in our series of ‘confessions of a…’
There’s lots of really good stuff in here and hope it will develop. I’m not just saying that because they happen to have carried a piece by me on students as consumers (or not). OK, that does have a bearing but there is I think a gap to be filled here. Will be interesting to see if it works out.
