In this workshop, we will invite contributions from academic researchers working in the area of marketization, unbundling and digital technology, in the context of the higher education sector. The workshop will involve presentations from researchers working on topics related to our ESRC funded research project on unbundling of higher education.

The workshop will involve presentations of research data from a range of academic perspectives, including demonstrations of data for participants to explore, critically evaluate and discuss. Participants will be able discuss, critique and question the data presented by speakers.
