“78% of Australians viewed universities as crucial in solving the world's biggest challenges. And 76% agreed that access to universities should be expanded” - yet, here we are. Great article by ⁦

What clause in yr enterprise agreement allows teaching-intensive academic employment? What circumstances justify separating teaching from research in the EA? Is it the view of yr dept that one can teach history well and not be a researcher? Should this person research for free?

The crazed reality of Higher Education in Australia today. Rapidly rising enrolments and Universities sacking thousands of staff. Nineteenth century isn't over.

20 August 2020. Australia’s fire season is back already. And Australia’s national government still has no credible law or policy to reduce the carbon pollution from coal, oil and gas that is driving the climate emergency.

Wangan and Jagalingou - Standing Our Ground Aug 19
BREAKING: We have just served with an eviction notice for illegally trespassing on Wangan & Jagalingou land and demanded they cease all mining and extractive activities on our Country. They’ve got to stop work, and get out.

Haha. Nice weird geography of Mountains affluent class envy. If Lapstone is Lilyfield. Blaxland is Stanmore surely. Maccas on the main road, pub that's seen better days, more a pit stop than the nearby village of Annandale (Glenbrook in my view).

This coal mine proposal is 12 years too old. It should be canned once and for all.

La Trobe confirming that although 239 staff have opted to take voluntary redundancies and staff have voted to support a 10% pay cut, we will still be looking at 215-415 forced redundancies later this year

The proposed incentives are all over the shop. Austerity = the cohering logic.

Sure. Would be great if more lower SES students chose more environmental studies/science. Significantly less debt for these degrees/units compared to traditional HASS. I suppose I was saying its a smaller change in student debt compared to current ES HECS rates.

Doubt the changed CSG (-$1,3K/yr) will shift decisions on ES enrolment.. But the overall 30% per student/yr cut to HECS in that band's CSP places could mean having to teach more students to have same revenue... imagine it also depends on intra-uni allocations.

Course ‘price’ has a fairly weak effect on student choice at Aus unis due to deferred cost and other factors like institutional status being more important. Tehan’s changes won’t do much to redirect students to STEM but will subject arts grads to longer and higher HECS repayments
