Re-Imagining Education at Western Sydney University

Michael Sampson - Currents

Western Sydney University, with six campuses in the area, has installed new A/V equipment in two of its campuses to trial new forms of collaborative learning in classroom situations : In place of old-fashioned tutorial rooms with rows of desks facing the lecturer, the new campus will feature 24 learning studios accommodating between 50 and 60 students each. I hope the project team at the university are putting 80% of their effort into this re-thinking / re-imagining issue.

Changing Dynamics in Learning at University

Michael Sampson - Currents

The key finding is that how students study and learn is changing: " While most universities advocate that students work no more than 12-16 hours per week while enrolled in a full time course, almost a third of students who maintain a full time job are working 16 hours or more per week according to the survey, which questioned both higher education and further education students across the UK. University isn't the only place to learn these things anymore.

But nowhere do they say anything about abandoning universal care. That is universal health care.

Harrison Owen reflects on who we are in the universe

Chris Corrigan

To some it may seem that we are simply cast about like so much cosmic flotsam and jetsam – and on a day when the partner of the moment is dark chaos that is surely the experience. But partners change and the dance moves on – light creative order enters our experience. How wonderful it might be to hold that moment for ever. The ecstacy is not in the moment, But in its passage. To hold the moment is to destroy it –. The ending of the dance. I think we are all dancers who live fully when we dance.
