Big ideas for Australian universities

Institutional Management in Higher Education

Within weeks of taking office, Australia’s new Labor government commissioned two major reviews – one of Australia’s innovation system and one of Australian higher education. Taken together, these reviews will have major implications for the future of research and teaching in Australia for decades to come. This paper discusses the main recommendations of these reviews, puts them into context and examines the government’s response.



Although the innovation review was conducted first, this paper begins with the higher education review because its recommendations, at least in regard to universities, are broader. Those parts of the innovation review that are relevant to universities follow. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of what will happen next.



De grandes idées pour les universités australiennes

Quelques semaines après son entrée en fonction, le nouveau gouvernement travailliste australien a commandé deux études, l’une portant sur le système d’innovation australien et l’autre sur l’enseignement supérieur en Australie. Prises dans leur ensemble, ces études auront des répercussions considérables sur l’avenir de la recherche et de l’enseignement australiens dans les décennies à venir. Cet article traite des principales recommandations proposées par ces études, rappelle le contexte dans lequel elles s’inscrivent et analyse la réponse du gouvernement.

Bien que l’étude sur l’innovation soit menée en premier, l’article s’intéresse d’abord à l’étude sur l’enseignement supérieur car elle propose des recommandations plus générales, tout au moins concernant les universités. Les éléments de l’étude sur l’innovation ayant un intérêt pour les universités sont repris ensuite. L’article s'achève par une brève réflexion sur les perspectives.
