MFU Podcast 45: Uni-what? The state and future of the tertiary system in Australia.

This was an interesting, and timely, talk (timely for myself, at least). I haven’t listened to the recording yet, but hopefully it includes the audience discussion, too. It’s hard not to feel frustrated by the way education is being handled by these massive companies, and this was a good opportunity to share that, with both staff and other students. There was a protest yesterday about proposed funding cuts, but to me the problem (that too many don’t seem to even see) is not an economic one, but a philosophical one.

I have been working on a website to host my work, which is changing the way I think about using this blog. I imagine I will make more posts like this in the future; less explicitly output related.
