Introducing the University Management Podcast

Writing about web page http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/audio/ump/

I’d just like to introduce a new service – the University Management Podcast.

This is a new podcast focussing on issues relating to the management and administration of universities. Whilst the main emphasis will be on the UK HE sector, I hope to include content from HE managers in other countries as well.

Each podcast will include comment and discussion on issues in HE as well as features and examples of practice from around the sector. Whilst in the early days I expect a large number of Warwick people to be involved, as the podcast develops I expect a broader range of people from other insitutions to appear.

Please feel free to let me have any comments on the service or its content:

  • What topics do you want to hear covered?
  • Do you want to take part?
  • Are you inspired/annoyed by something you hear?

Feedback from listeners is going to be a big part of the podcast and I would like to include comments and input from people responding to topics covered, so get writing or why not record your own audio repsonse and we can add it to the regular release.

  1. 1. I would like to examine the mind-boggling idiocy that suggests that we compare performance in dry organisational functions with ‘other HE institutions’ rather than with examples of genuine good practice (especially from industry). Being ‘a bit better’ than someone you know is not the same as being the best in the world. No matter how complacent you feel!

    ‘reasonably good’ or ‘not bad’ is seen as acceptable – as long as other institutions are worse – this is not good enough.

    2. Passive information availability is not the same as communication – discuss.

    3. Saying ‘you should know this’ is not the same as telling someone something – discuss

  2. re: point 1 – I think reference to other sectors/examples is a good idea – as long as we can show the relevance to HE
