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
Sectoral change since Robbins and into the future
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.
The end of internationalisation?
Why MOOCs really aren’t going to end universities’ international activities.
On the problems with and impact of freedom of information requests.
What do we know about leadership in higher education?
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.
