This week’s issue review was recorded in Red Lion Square, outside the Times Higher Education’s London offices. The concept of monitoring graduates’ earnings according to the university they attended, students’ understanding of plagiarism, and the problems caused by “zero-hours” contracts are all up for discussion, along with this week’s cover feature on the university working week. Chris Parr is joined by reporter Elizabeth Gibney, editor John Gill, news editor Simon Baker and deputy news editor John Morgan to look at some of the highlights from the latest edition.
