A survey of continuing education courses in all higher education institutions in Australia was undertaken in the second half of 1987. This paper describes the range of course and subject provision, and the difficulties experienced in achieving common descriptions from the highly individualistic survey data. It explores the extent of the largely unrecognised role that can be and is played by the institutions as they provide continuing education programs. In particular, it discusses some innovative delivery strategies which a few institutions have employed to develop courses of professional relevance and to ensure that they recover costs.
