Tertiary Union Accuses UWA Of “Dumbing Down”

Tuesday 25th August / posted by Chris Wheeldon

It seems the idea of humans being replaced by machines is becoming a reality.

The National Tertiary Education Union has accused UWA of ‘dumbing down’ their teaching by pushing online learning over face-to-face teaching.
UWA Management replacing their academic staff with online interactive technology as part of its Education Futures Vision has caused concern for heavy reliance on technology without adequate academic backup.

Chris Mason interviews Dr Jamie O’Shea the President Of The UWA Branch of the National Tertiary Education Union.
