MyUniversity: Notes on neoliberalism and knowledge
At a recent meeting of the Academic Board, Professor Raewyn Connell, from the Faculty of Education here at the University of Sydney, presented a paper about the intrusion of neo-liberalism into the academy. Beginning with the MyUniversity
website, which, she argues, like its sister site MySchool
, "display[s] the market-centered policy logic that has been changing education – and every other field of Australian life – since the mid 1980s." In her discussion paper, Professor Connell draws out some of the implications of this neo-liberal policy logic as they might apply to Higher Education and the work of Research and Teaching.
