Governance of University Education
Ian Young, Vice Chancellor of the Australian National University has released Draft Academic Board and Committees Rules for comment. This is timely with new rules for the oversight of Australian universities comming into effect in 2012. The Draft Academic Board and Committees Rules 2011 (PDF, 40KB) are a readable and concise 7 pages. One improvement I would suggest is to distribute the documents as HTML web pages, not in PDF format. This would make the documents easier to read on-line and send the message that the ANU is ready for the new age of education..
