Because universities are still difficult, but still worth it
With the latest post, on Robbins, we are now up to a total of 18 pieces to date in the Imperfect University series. Covering a wide range of occasionally relevant issues I do hope there is something for everyone in here. And there is a question at the end. Anyway, do let me know what you think – here are the posts from 2013:
A collection of the first series of Imperfect University posts from 2012
A piece based on a conference presentation looking at changes in higher education in the past 50 years and what the future might hold.
On why it is time to look again at a move to post-qualification admissions or PQA.
A piece about the value of a well-developed sense of institutional history.
Why MOOCs really aren’t going to end universities’ international activities.
On the problems with and impact of freedom of information requests.
Not a great deal seems to be the answer.
A look at the dimensions of a genuinely global higher education operation.
Finally, from the top – The Imperfect University provides the original introduction to the series
More to follow in the year ahead. In the meantime, here’s a question. Is it time for an Imperfect University book?
Whatever the answer, will keep the series going.
