How to change
What you might take away from this chapter:
- Students can be persuaded to behave in educationally useful ways if you expect this of them at an early stage;
- Staff need encouragement from middle and senior management to give serious thought to teaching;
- There are many examples of University systems which are not best fitted to deliver top-class engineering graduates. Changing these is probably the hardest task of all, but should be attempted.
Ruth Graham’s report for the Royal Academy of Engineering (2012) deals with many of these issues.
