You will benefit from the study of higher education as a whole, including all its overlapping professional and inter-professional practices (eg teaching, research, administration, leadership and support). Through this holistic focus, you will learn to understand a sector that is experiencing significant and ongoing change. You will be able to reflect on the changes in rigorous ways to bring about meaningful innovation.
The course will enhance your ability to:
- apply rigorous conceptual analysis to issues within higher education;
- approach professional practice through methodical research, enquiry and scholarship;
- understand higher education practices in different professional domains, in relation to national trends, international trends and wider socio-cultural contexts; and
- become a higher educational professional who thinks critically, within and outside the bounds of your own professional practice, and challenges the higher educational sector.
