No money; no change: the impact of national policies to improve learning and teaching
This chapter opens by considering the effect on learning and teaching of Europe's Bologna process and the United Kingdom's National Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education chaired by Sir Ron (now Lord) Dearing. These set the context for the case study for this chapter, the attempt by the Australian government to improve learning and teaching in higher education as part of its 'Crossroads' review of higher education. The study finds a number of key issues in managing change and posits one ultimate reality of educational change: change in behaviour is greatly encouraged by change in financial rewards.
