Monash U can “reshape future” says VC

Margaret Gardner is looking forward to life returning to campus 

“We have so much that has been lost to recover and appreciate again,” she tells staff.

But after all the COVID-caused disruption, she gently suggests there is more change to come, “because we can reshape our future.”

Including teaching.

“In these last two years, we have been engaged in a forced major experiment which is valuable for what it has shown us about the key areas for ensuring a great educational experience for our students.”

“Plans for how we educate and develop our students will need to change with a clear eye on what we wish to do over the longer term.”

So, it could all be imminently over for the new normal.
