Compliance constraints ...

Again and often again, I encounter situations where it is clear that compliance to an unrealistic framework is stifling the real work needed in education. I was given some units to review, reading the comments from the 'compliance' auditor - their pedantry in terms of verb, adverb and adjective usage was contrary to the discipline at hand. They would have cut critical content because the words used by the subject at hand are seemingly incompatible with the terms of the standards framework.

Hopefully you are now having a 'for frigs sake moment' ... if not, please get help.

When has it become acceptable that a standards framework applied to all qualifications should shape the terms and language used by some very advanced and considered disciplines. Ones that should inform the next generation of students and therefore industry.

Compliance in my view is getting a bit silly, please stop it. PLEASE!!! *




For exclamation mark pedants - I like using three exclamations, get over it.
