Different Discourses, Discourses of Difference: Globalisation, Distance Education and Open Learning.
Edwards, Richard
Distance Education, v16 n2 p241-55 1995
Drawing on Foucault's notion of discourse, it is suggested that post-Fordism and globalization trends can be found in changing theories of distance education and open learning. Argues that notions of distance education are part of a trend towards uniformity under conditions of globalization, while those of open learning are part of a trend to encourage difference and diversity.
