Outcomes-based metrics and research measurement in Australian higher education
chapterposted on 2021-09-24, 00:51 authored by Ann SardesaiAnn Sardesai, James Guthrie
This chapter explores how four decades of neoliberalist policies have transformed a historically erudite and collegial culture within Australian universities into a mass-delivery mechanism for education and research outputs. It examines the pervasiveness of New Public Management accounting and auditing in academic performance measurement. We find that academic performance in Australian universities has become increasingly characterized by a managerial audit culture.
