ADCET is excited to bring you our latest podcast, which was produced in partnership with the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE). In this Podcast we have the pleasure of chatting with Professor Marcia Devlin. Marcia is an outstanding researcher, leader and educator who has worked in executive and senior leadership roles at Victoria University, RMIT University, Federation University Australia, Open Universities Australia, the University of Melbourne and Deakin University. Marcia’s 300+ publications have been cited thousands of time. Through exploring the prominence of equity throughout Marcia’s career we are powerfully reminded that advancing equity in higher education is always the right thing to do, and a clear and current priority. In a conversation spanning the troubles in Ireland, sexism in the academy, and efforts to compensate for the impact of COVID on students in Victoria, Marcia generously shares her insight with candour and good humour. ADCET is confident that listeners will be inspired to do the right thing to support the advancement of equity in Australian higher education.Reports and research discussed in this episode are available at the following links:Bridging socio-cultural incongruity: Conceptualising the success of students from low socio-economic status backgrounds in Australian higher educationIn their own words: A qualitative study of the reasons Australian university students plagiarizewww.marciadevlin.com.auwww.googlescholar.com
ADCET again reaches out beyond Australian shores to explore the ins and outs of disability and equity in higher education. This time we travel (virtually) with Matt Brett to Colombia to chat with Global Tertiary Education Expert Jamil Salmi.Jamil has provided policy advice to governments and university leaders across over 100 countries. He consulted with and for the World Bank, the Organisation Economic Cooperation and Development, the European Commission, and closer to home, AusAid. There are few in the world that combine such a nuanced and comprehensive understanding of higher education globally, with a lifelong interest and commitment to student equity. In this episode we discuss Jamil’s Moroccan roots, the relationship between education, equity and economic development, where disability is positioned in global higher education policy, and how Australia compares internationally for its equity policies. We are grateful for Jamil’s candor and insight, sharing his tips for what makes him in high demand as a key note speaker the world over. Jamil’s generosity extends to providing ADCET listeners with access to forthcoming publications about the missing equity dimensions of international rankings, and an imagining of higher education in the post-COVID 2036 future. Related resourcesJamil Salmi Language and Schooling in MoroccoThe challenge of establishing world class universitiesIf ranking is the disease, is benchmarking the cureUniversity of al-Qarawiyyin Measuring the Impact of Equity Promotion Policies: Lessons from National and Institutional Case StudiesTEQSA conference 2019 Jamil Salmi: On Trust
This podcast episode is the audio taken from our webinar, Mentoring during the Time of COVID-19. Over the last few years, a number of universities have implemented specialist peer mentoring programs to support students on the Autism Spectrum with their studies.  While many of us appreciate the positive impact these can have for students on the spectrum, what’s the impact for the mentors?  This podcast draws on the experience of a panel of student mentors from across Australia to explore the personal and potential professional benefits of being a mentor.  Mentors will also share their insights on the impact of COVID-19 on their role and for their mentees, and will offer some suggestions for supporting students on the Autism Spectrum during these times. The podcast is hosted by Debbie Hindle. Debbie has been coordinating the University of Tasmania's Specialist Peer Mentoring Program (Speerment) since it’s inception in 2017. She was also the Project Officer responsible for compiling the resource: How to Transition to Tertiary Education: Helpful Hints for People with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Debbie is appreciative that a key part of her knowledge in this area has been informed by nearly a decade of experience as a mentor to someone on the Autism Spectrum.Watch the full webinar:https://www.adcet.edu.au/resource/10392/adcet-webinar-mentoring-during-the-time-of-covid-19/
ADCET listeners are in for a treat with this fourth podcast produced in association with the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE). Dr Lin Martin recently completed a five-year term as a TEQSA Commissioner, having previously held leadership roles at Flinders University, the University of South Australia, the University of New South Wales, the Higher Education Council, the University of Melbourne, Deakin University, and RMIT University. Dr Lin Martin reflects on a career spanning the transition from a research higher degree student in the early 1970s to a brilliant career in higher education leadership, administration and regulation.Dr Martin’s contributions to student equity are synonymous with the ‘Martin Indicators’ which have defined how the sector has tracked equity group access, participation, success and retention for over three decades. Lin speaks frankly about the motivations behind the Indicator project, and hard fought gains the Martin Indicators represent, and which staff working in the sector may now take for granted. Dr Martin is gracious in recognising the mentors who nurtured her career, and was more than generous in sharing her knowledge and experiences of Australian higher education. The conversation concludes with a powerful statement about the transformative power of education.Links to reports and publications referenced during the conversation include:A Fair Chance For All Department of Employment, Education and Training 1990Performance indicators in higher education: report of a trial evaluation study (Linke report) Department of Employment, Education and Training 1990Equity and General Performance Indicators in Higher Education Lin Martin 1994Equality, diversity and excellence: advancing the national higher education equity framework Higher Education Council 1996Framing the framework: the origins of 'A fair chance for all' Lin Martin 2016Characteristics of Australian higher education providers and their relation to first-year student attrition TEQSA 2017Lin’s story is also told in a chapter The History of the Modern Australian University.
