Building Australia’s Tertiary Education Future

Building Australia’s Tertiary Education Future

Professor Glenn Withers – Professor of Economics, Australian National University and founding CEO of Universities Australia

(Published on 22 August 2017 | Running Time: 20:01)

Episode Highlights:

Professor Glenn Withers provides insight on the current Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Higher Education environments in Australia and the important choices we should focus on at a national level. We discuss the challenges of internationalisation, massification and digitisation, and what’s driving universities to move online.

We ask if universities’ preoccupation with the on-campus experience may be blinding them to opportunities with blended and fully online offerings and what impact they may cause.

This interview was filmed at the Digital Campus and Blended Learning Innovation’ Conference 2017 in Melbourne, Australia.
