2021 PANEL & KEYNOTE SERIES //
2021 CA KEYNOTE #01 REFLECTIONS, OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES FOR THE TERTIARY SECTOR AND TEQSA
In this Webinar, the Chief Commissioner of TEQSA, Professor Peter Coaldrake AO, will reflect on some of the opportunities and challenges for both the Australian higher education sector and TEQSA as we deal with some of the new 'normalities'. Peter will give his perspectives and insights through two lenses: as a regulator and through the eyes of his past life as a Vice-Chancellor.
Emeritus Professor Peter Coaldrake AO
is currently the Chair of the Board of the Queensland Performing Arts Trust, a Commissioner of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), and Board member of the Queensland Community Foundation. He will take up the role of Chief Commissioner of TEQSA in March 2021.
Upon taking up his current TEQSA Commissioner appointment he stepped down from two other roles, as Chair of Jobs Queensland, and as an external Council member of The University of Newcastle. Professor Coaldrake completed his almost fifteen-year term as Vice-Chancellor and CEO of Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in December 2017, and is a former Chair of both the peak body for Australia’s Universities, Universities Australia (UA) and the governing board of the OECD's then higher education group (IMHE).
In October 2018 he was appointed by Federal Education Minister, the Honourable Dan Tehan, to conduct a review into the Higher Education Provider Category Standards. In 2018 he also undertook two separate Reviews for the Queensland government: one dealing with the present and future Queensland public sector workforce, and the other of the future of vocational education, training and skilling in central-western Queensland, focusing on the performance of the Agricultural Colleges.
A dual Fulbright scholar, Professor Coaldrake has authored or edited a number of books and monographs including, most recently, Raising the Stakes: Gambling with the Future of Universities (co-authored with Dr Lawrence Stedman, UQP, 2013; 2nd ed. 2016).
He is the recipient of a ‘Queensland Great’ Award (2017) and the Asia Pacific Leadership Award by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (2016).
