How Do We Value Education?

With thanks to James Crossley for pointing this out-

Against Value in the Arts and Humanities’, an event held at the University of Sheffield (February 23, 2012) . A podcast, including a brilliant lecture by Peter Thompson, is available here.

It’s must listening, truly.  Everyone in academia needs to take notice- as do those in government.  (Do, though, pay little attention to the opening 18.5 minutes of banter and background noise and horrid music and don’t let them put you off).
