Q6. This is going to vary by institution of course. gas and electric phone number In mine, I can say it has fallen by about as much, maybe more. Several reasons for this – while commercial and philanthropic revenue has grown, there are other costs which have substantially increased – capital spending (including maintenance, repair, upgrading equipment) has been largely absent, meaning that unavoidable spending has had to come out of the pot. There is more externally imposed regulation (procurement, data, equality, FOI etc) plus lots of other HEA (and other) imposed data gathering etc requiring more admin to service. New focus areas around non-EU students require revenue to be spent etc. what are the 4 gas giants in the solar system And, not least, all these other foci resulting from the reduced funding reduce the attention/time that students get

Q7. I have some serious reservations about this. If ground-up/emergent for the purpose of self-improvement and better understanding, then great. If it becomes about standardisation, comparison, funding etc, then there are many pitfalls. Already, student progression/retention rates are part of the funding compacts, which risks (some might even say guarantees!) retention over quality.

Q8. Yes, I read the series of posts. I have many issues with the ISSE too. 5 gases found in the environment There is the Eurostudent survey ( http://hea.ie/assets/uploads/2018/01/HEA-Eurostudent-Survey.pdf) which tells us some of these things. Specifically that 85% of university students work during the semester, and that the average study (i.e. academic related matters of all kinds – lectures, study, self directed etc) time for those is 35.3 hrs/week. Bear in mind that this is self-reported, so is likely to have an element of virtue signalling. As an aside, I have regularly surveyed my own students engaged in group work activities on the time they spend, and the time they perceive their team-mates, on average, spend. If accurate, of course the aggregate averages should be the same. In practice the self-reported activity levels are about 60% higher. If this were more generally true it would suggest that the true student activity level is closer to 20-25 hours on average. 8 gas laws Even if you take the 35 hours, from what I can see all the Irish unis operate ~30 weeks of student active time (excluding repeats) between official term time, study time, examination periods etc. The maths will show that falls well short of the 1200-1500 hours that it should be – and even further short of what many of our european colleagues expect (often using 1ECTS=28 or even 30 hours)

Q9. I agree totally about needing foundational knowledge. gas number density I can imagine some potential benefits in terms of goal setting, perseverence etc that MIGHT be achieved in more abstract generic exercises (e.g. using Lego), but I can appreciate that there is a faddishness/fetishing of in-vogue exercises without really solid matching of the objectives to the means

Q11. Yes, I concur. Basic workplace psychology tells us that people will focus on a combination (varying by person) of what fulfils them and what rewards (financially or in terms of status etc) them. If we skew our rewards process towards one thing (and by implication away from another), then we shouldn’t really be surprised if people react
