The impact of the Net on teaching and research in Political Science: a Tasmanian case study
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-26, 16:26 authored by Bostock, WW
This paper considers the place of the discipline of Political Science in the modern educational milieu of corporatised universities and finds indications that its position is in slight decline. The growing importance of the Net is indirectly related to this process but also offers a way back: in teaching delivery, in research input and in the publication of research results. The School of Government in the University of Tasmania provides a case study of response to the opportunities and risks that come with use of the Net.
