- The National Student Survey and its inclusion as a reliable metric in League tables, Subject level "Excellence" awards etc.
- The empowerment of students through Quality Assurance systems (and the knee-jerk reactions of the random VC who "gets down with the kidz" and wants action on every minor moan).
- The promise/threat of technology. Expectations are high for Millenials. This is the 21st Century after all...
- The utter contempt in which many Universities hold their staff who are, naturally, exchangeable for recent PhD graduates with no experience or interest in teaching - a position that is not lost on the student body.
CPD? I hear you say, what on earth is that?
