    Saif Ali Shaikh: Welcome to my UniSA experience

We can customize our timetable, attend events and make new friends First I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do going ahead in my career However towards the end of my degree, with the help of UniSA I did a few placements which helped me to find my current job. Honestly, yes! Studying at UniSA was a life-changing experience for me. It did not only change my professional, but also my personal life

    Econ Duel: Is Education Signaling or Skill Building?

    ♪ (music) ♪ [Tyler] Alex’s office is just down the hall from mine. He and I write a blog together and we’ve been arguing for 25 years now. So we thought we’d do some arguing for you. This is about education. Alex thinks education is mostly about signaling, namely demonstrating to the outside world your underlying level of talent. Whereas I think education is mostly about learning. So Alex, why don’t you just tell us a bit about how wrong you are? [Alex] All right, but let’s be clear first about what we’re arguing about. It’s very obvious that people who go to college earn more. Their incomes are higher.…

    Rethinking college education: Put the student first, not the university | Dan Rosensweig

    There’s a really interesting question which is: what are the ramifications of the college education system—potentially, and we believe—in a bubble that’s likely to burst (and is already bursting), and with parents and employers looking to find alternative ways to get their kids or their students the skills they need to be able to be successful citizens and successful in business? So what was interesting about the education system is everything in the education system was designed to support the existing system, like most businesses—designed to serve the publisher, the professor, the administrator, all the people that worked at the school. But you looked at the student and you said…
