My University Quality Ranks Australia
DENISE Bradley has backed federal Education Minister Julia Gillard’s plans for a My University website, arguing it is in line with the new “student demand-driven” system being rolled out. There are concerns that complex information on a university’s performance, such as the varied academic background of commencing students, could be taken out of context and lead to simplistic judgments…. The government, meanwhile, is considering introducing a university experience questionnaire aimed at gauging the opinions of first-year students.
The last sentence is critical, the site must not become a sales/promo vehicle based on size, numbers etc. but be more marketing oriented, i.e. include information based upon quality and stakeholder input i.e. students, community and employers.
Quality is what the users specify, not the providers.
