University satellite campus management models (AUR 57 02)

By Ian Dobson (NTEU National Office). Among the 60 or so university satellite campuses in Australia are many that are probably failing to meet the high expectations of their universities and the communities they were designed to serve.

Too few or perhaps too many STEM graduates (AUR 57 02)

Ghosts in the machine: Incarcerated students and the Digital University (AUR 57 02)

By Ian Dobson (NTEU National Office). Providing higher education to offenders in custody has become an increasingly complex business in the age of digital learning. Most Australian prisoners still have no direct access to the internet and relatively unreliable access to information technology.
