Example text

The University of the Past was associated with elitism, exclusion and inequalities (Morley, 2010a). The University of Today is diversified, expanded, globalised, borderless/edgeless, marketised, technologised, neo-liberalised and potentially privatised. Dominant discourses and imagined policy futures focus on excellence, innovation, digitisation, globalisation, teaching and learning, employability and economic impact (BIS, 2009). It is unclear whether these recent and current policy discourses are generating creative thinking about the future of universities, or whether they are limiting it.

The university of today is part of a national system of “higher education” composed of many types of institutions subject to contradictory tendencies. One promotes greater cooperation between colleges and universities, a fuller sharing of resources and commitments in the interests of the greater good. The other encourages competition, rankings, hyperbola and the exploitation of multifarious markets. Yet taken as a whole and with all of its perceived drawbacks, this world holds great possibilities for intellectual discovery, for social betterment and—to return to Newman—for teaching.

No one model prevails, and in some nations the participation of central government has been milder than in others. Historically, universities were accustomed to setting their own curricular and degree standards, with external examining in Britain assuring that standards across a particular segment of higher education were reasonably uniform. The system worked well when universities were few in number and polytechnics were linked to a central validating body, the Council for National Academic Awards.
