Reimagining higher education

31 May 2022

Universities are not what they used be.

Some argue they are now quasi-businesses, competing with one another for market share, and revenue.

How have universities drifted from their original mission?

Might the covid pandemic, and the climate emergency, trigger a conversation about how we can reimagine higher education?

Richard Hil and Kristen Lyons hope so.

They speak to Paul Barclay about their book, Transforming Universities in the Midst of Global Crisis

Recorded on March 28, 2022 at Avid Reader bookstore, Brisbane.


Richard Hil - author; Adjunct Professor, Griffith University, and Southern Cross University.

Kristen Lyons - Professor of Sociology, University of Queensland.
