Short and sweet: more micro-courses

The budget includes $252m for 50 000 places in new higher education short courses in agriculture, health, IT, science and teaching. Education Minister Tehan is really keen on short courses, small-ish numbers now, but its part of a way-bigger plan.  (CMM September 25). If the funding is at the level paid for courses created as part of the response to COVID-19 there will not be much in this for universities who stick to existing teaching models. But CMM suspects they aren’t the providers the minister has in mind.
