A lack of rewards for high-quality teaching, the impact of global demographic changes on higher education, and research into the role of dogs in UK gang culture are among the topics up for discussion in this week’s issue review podcast. We also look at parental influence over their child’s choice of university and the Three-Minute Thesis competition. Chris Parr is joined by editor John Gill and reporters Jack Grove and Elizabeth Gibney to look at some of the highlights from this week’s edition of Times Higher Education.
