“What can the five-year-old Productivity Commission add to a thousand-year-old institution?”
The future of tertiary education will be discussed in the next public lecture in the headline-making UC Connect series.
Chair of the Productivity Commission Murray Sherwin will cover topics such as:
- How well have tradition-steeped teaching institutions adapted to the 21st century?
- Is growth in tertiary education helping increase productivity and wellbeing in New Zealand?
- Is the tertiary education system delivering what New Zealanders want?
- Is it even clear what the system’s goals are?
Murray is an economist with over 35 years’ experience in a wide range of public policy roles. You can read more about him and the topic here.
