Beyond the ATAR—reflections on the future of higher education
Despite research that indicates that Generation Z will have multiple careers in their lifetime, students still feel that their ATAR score is a defining moment. But it can take years of reflection and a range of experiences before individuals find the area of learning where they thrive, and models of higher education in Australia are only just beginning to support flexibility for the diverse needs of individual learners.
In this episode, Principal of Brisbane Girls Grammar School, Ms Jacinda Euler Welsh, speaks with Professor Adam Shoemaker, Vice Chancellor and President of Victoria University, about the stories, lessons and ideas he has encountered through his varied and accomplished career in research and education.
Ms Jacinda Euler Welsh will join Professor Adam Shoemaker again later in 2023 to discuss Girls Grammar’s progress toward a Reconciliation Action Plan.
