In late 2008, just after the onset of the Global Financial Crisis, a large Australian business school embarked on a curriculum renewal process. I was a member of the panel, and the project became the site of my PhD study. My research showed that discourses relating to managerial, business/competitive and global issues are highly evident. What is far less evident is a discussion of the student as a learner, a particular issue with trends in technology creating a new ''species'' of student - a ''singularity'' of human and machine. The paper attempts to demonstrate that higher education curriculum change includes a layered set of discursive practices, and that the topics of these discursive practices are as likely to be the organisation, as about the student experience of curriculum. Challenges and opportunities related to researching the practice of curriculum renewal are raised.
