Unbundling and Rebundling Higher Education in an Age of Inequality

The Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching's (CILT) Laura Czerniewicz wrote for the Educause Review about "Unbundling and Rebundling Higher Education in an Age of Inequality":

"Unbundling and rebundling are terms that have become more widespread in the last few years, in articles in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Forbes, Huffington Post, and EDUCAUSE Review.1 But these terms do not come from higher education; their original source is the banking industry. An online search for unbundling and rebundling today will lead to results not only in banking but also in the computer industry, legal services, and of course, the music industry. Relatively recently, these concepts have become realities in higher education—at a time when state funding for education is decreasing, higher education tuitions are increasing in many parts of the world, and student numbers and demographics are changing as well."

Questions academics can ask to decolonise their classrooms

"...we’ve come up with a series of questions to encourage academics across faculties to unearth some of the norms, assumptions and everyday practices that are taken for granted and which may be entangled in the “hidden curriculum”. This might help us to think through the “how” as well as the “what”, as a first practical step towards “decolonising” our teaching."

Humanities Education Development Unit's Shannon Morreira and Associate Professor, Kathy Luckett report on the work of a working group called "Decolonising Pedagogy in the Humanities".
