There is no doubt about this and is already damaging the quality of education across the sector. Need to keep up pressure on sector managers and the federal government to set absolute limits on university class sizes and to staff univs properly.
Class sizes at many Australian universities are out of control. Tripling + since the 1990s. Reducing tutorial/ lab class sizes is key to improving student experience, equity, and higher ed outcomes. Optimum class size will differ by discipline..so ask the disciplines. #UAConf2022
