The Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) calls for significant long-term government investment into promoting excellence and innovation in learning and teaching across the entire higher education sector. In its submission to the federal government regarding the Office for Learning and Teaching replacement, ABDC emphasises the critical role this body plays in supporting a quality learning and teaching environment, which ultimately supports successful student outcomes. In particular, students from different language, cultural or learning backgrounds benefit significantly from a sharing of best practice in learning and teaching.
ABDC recommends that the new body must retain an autonomous national governance structure to ensure credibility, transparency and sector-wide support. As Australian business schools graduate one-in-three university students in Australia and a significant majority of international, work-integrated and flexible delivery programmes - all which benefit greatly from dissemination of effective and innovative practice across the entire higher education - it is critically important that ABDC is involved in any further consultation on developing Australia’s learning and teaching capability.
