Is tertiary education too slow?
Earlier this week Unitec’s chief executive Rick Ede said many tertiary education courses are too restrictive for modern students.
Ede told Kathryn Ryan’s Nine to Noon show (http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/ninetonoon/audio/201797465/the-future-of-tertiary-education) that if institutions move away from the “old traditional chalk-and-talk model to a more collaborative, practical environment” learning can take place much more quickly.
TEU communications officer Stephen Day talked to Unitec's TEU branch president Sid Suha Aksoy and TEU national president Sandra Grey to find out if this is the case.
