Alecia Simmonds | Why Australia hates thinkers - 2 views

  • Perhaps there's a link between the myth of Australian egalitarianism and anti-intellectualism.
  • Academics are often timorous folk who specialise in showing the complexity of issues, not offering tweet-sized solutions. Social media doesn't democratise debate. It limits it to the resilient. Snark triumphs over insight, and commentary is reserved for those with voluminous folds of scar-tissue. Sensitive thinkers rarely fit this bill.
  •  
    "There's no doubt that Australia is a vast, sunny, intellectual gulag. The question is why. It's certainly not for want of thinkers. We're home to some brilliant minds"

It's the name the city should have been graced with all along. Instead, we're saddled with Canberra, a word with all the melodic qualities of a Treasury official poring over tax figures. The thing is, Ngambri and Canberra are - or were - the same word, and they've travelled a long path, as will be revealed."

Why the US election matters for Australian higher education - 0 views

  • The global financial crisis heralded the arrival of a new era for international higher education. It is an era defined as much by the rapid emergence of educational innovations — like multinational universities and Massive Open Online Courses “MOOCs”
  • But the competitive advantage challenge now facing Australian universities is to build an educational experience that will continue to draw foreign students to Australia. This means ensuring our universities best prepare Asian students to succeed in the 21st century global job market.

  •  
    "Asian students are attracted by what US colleges offer; an outstanding education, safe residential communities, an extraordinary network of influential alumni and a degree from a university with a global brand. It's the total package, and it's seen as a higher quality education than that offered by Australian universities. Or indeed anywhere else."
