Tertiary transformers

Several universities and TAFE institutions have made significant changes to the structure and delivery of their courses in the last few years. These have often been matched with changes to the physical design of spaces, to make them more engaging for students.

What are the underlying principles of these changes, and what kind of learning is now occurring?

Listen to tertiary education experts Jo Dane, Andrew Williamson and Peter Jamieson discuss the issues.

Jo is co-program coordinator of the Bachelor of Interior Architecture, and research coordinator for the Spatial Research Group, Monash University. Andrew is CEO of the Australian Technical College in Sunshine. Peter is policy advisor at the University of Melbourne's Office of Provost.

This event was held on 23 June 2009 at the State Library of Victoria.
