Fanning the flames of non-conformity

Abstract


This opinion piece argues that higher education is and should be about the systematic encouragement of independent thought, action and non-conformity.

But that various forces act against these intentions. The author issues a rallying cry for the re-ignition of the flames of non-conformity......as a contribution to the future wellbeing of the higher education.

Keywords


Non-conformity; academic assertiveness; independent thought; co-production of learning
