Conclusion: time for a change

Abstract

This is the final part of the book, written by the editors. The conclusion summarises the key messages that the authors have attempted to communicate and emphasises how this book can be the catalyst for change in respect to the challenges that modern academics face in a volatile context. Taking a personal reflexive approach, the two editors conclude the book by arguing that if academics wish to sustain the values, status and autonomy that characterise the profession, then we need to vocalise and theorise these concerns, which must ultimately be turned into action that resists the current dominant discourse of the neo-liberal higher education.
