1. Editorial from President
We've seen a surge of interest in IARC this year. There are more enquires about joining, more membership applications and more visits to our web site, than ever before.
This is interesting. In Australia and the UK, I am constantly reading about how post secondary education is under financial pressure, and how government accreditation systems are getting tied down in more and more red tape. It sometimes seems like the education industry is becoming less about teaching and more about bureaucracy.
Despite these issues, people still want and need to learn. Learning is in fact, when all is said and done, the cornerstone of education. The best education will no doubt always be that which focuses on "learning" first, and puts everything else second. Its often easy to get distracted by meetings, audits and paperwork; but if we keep our focus on the student's "learning" , all of these other things somehow don't seem quite as much of a worry as they sometimes become.
John Mason, President, IARC
