Australia, academia and the airwaves

  • Andrew Greig University of Sydney


Although Radio and Television have been used extensively in School level Education in Australia, relatively little use has been made in Tertiary and Continuing Education. In recent times the Tertiary sector has increasingly employed video in teaching and a number of successful Public Educational radio stations have been set up by consortiums of Tertiary institutions. It is suggested that these stations should receive greater encouragement. With Television, a full broadcast Educational Television Network should be established in addition to the ABC/SBS and Commercial Networks and it should be run in a similar fashion to the Public Radio stations.
