However, the strength of an intrinsic motivation to learn does not explain the phenomenon of dropout where the student withdraws and does not return or where the student withdraws and then recommences their postgraduate research studies.

Public-private partnership in higher education - CQU meets CMS

By Ian Dobson. Massive growth in the numbers of fee-paying international students and an increasing private sector role are two of the most salient features of Australian higher education in the past quarter century.

Colloque "Les Fondements de la filiation"

Inscription dans la cadre de la formation continue
Le service Formation Continue et le laboratoire LexFEIM ((Laboratoire d’études en droits fondamentaux, des échanges internationaux et de la mer) de l'université du Havre vous proposent de participer au colloque "Les Fondements de la filiation" organisé sur 3 demi-journées les 10 et 11 mars prochain à l'université du Havre.
Réunissant praticiens du droit, chercheurs, magistrats, avocats et notaires, ce colloque vise dans une approche pluridisciplinaire à explorer les fondements de la filiation. En effet, les bouleversements sociétaux associés à la réévaluation du concept même de famille ont conduit à s’interroger sur l’adaptation réflexive du cadre normatif à ces évolutions, initiant un véritable choix éthique et ontologique sur ce qu’est la filiation. Les débats concernant l’assistance médicale à la procréation, la gestation pour autrui, le tourisme procréatif sont autant d’exemples de cette nécessité de penser voire de repenser la filiation dans le cadre de nos sociétés contemporaines, permettant à terme de comprendre le droit positif.
Les échanges autour de ce sujet transverse qu'est la filiation se réaliseront sur trois demi-journée, permettant ainsi aux professionnels que vous êtes de moduler leur participation en fonction de leur intérêt pour les thématiques abordées :

Demi-journée N°1 : 10/03/16 - après-midi - LES FONDEMENTS DE LA FILIATION EN DROIT INTERNE

Demi-journée N°2 : 11/03/16 - matin - LES DIFFERENTS FONDEMENTS DE LA FILIATION FACE AUX DROITS FONDAMENTAUX

Demi-journée N°3 : 11/03/16 - après-midi - LA DIVERSITE DES FONDEMENTS DE LA FILIATION DANS LE MONDE

Pour plus d'informations nous vous invitons à découvrir la présentation en ligne de ce colloque : https://www.univ-lehavre.fr/spip.php?article823
Les professionnels sont invités à s’inscrire en ligne via la page suivante : https://www-apps.univ-lehavre.fr/colloque_fonde...

The rising tide of insecure employment at Australian universities

By Jeannie Rea. This briefing paper from the NTEU Policy and Research Unit provides an analysis of the most recent Australian university staffing data. Our analysis of Departmental data demonstrates that since 2000 the rising tide of insecure employment has become a tidal wave, not only corroding the Australian university workforce but potentially displacing the very concept of academic tenure.

Apparently when it comes to VET, what you don’t know - can’ hurt you

By Paul Kniest. The Federal government seems to be adopting an interesting approach to stopping the rorts and rip-offs that have undermined the quality and integrity of Australia’s vocational education and training (VET) sector as a direct result of failed demand driven fully contestable market policies in this sector of tertiary education.
