We employ quite a few accounting cadets, so get a reasonable feel for the university education experience.  Being interested in the area, we also follow the general debates on education policies and standards in Australia compared to other countries, the Gonski debate etc.

Recently I read an article that seems to have the opportunity to create a new paradigm, at least in the teaching of history, and combines an Australian innovation with an entrepreneurs funding.

I wonder if there are other innovations of a similar nature that have the potential to revolutionise some of our teaching programs?
