This unit has three main themes, focusing on the main missions of tertiary institutions.
Managing Teaching and Learning. How are institutional strategies for teaching and learning and curriculum development designed and implemented? How do these relate to the rise of new technologies and the new focus on quality assurance?
Managing Research and Innovation. Knowledge and innovation are seen as key drivers of economic and social development. What does the rise of the knowledge economy mean for tertiary sector institutions? Key sub-themes explored are: the teaching-research nexus, research priority setting and commercialisation.
Managing Enterprise and Community Engagement. Who are the institution’s main stakeholders? What are the relationships between the institution and wider communities, industry and government organisations? How are these relationships extended and managed so that tertiary institutions make social and economic contributions through productive partnerships, in line with their main mission?
