End Games? Consumer-Based Learning in Higher Education and Its Implications for Lifelong Learning
Tomlinson, Michael
Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, v17 n4 p124-128 2013
This paper outlines core features of what it terms "consumer-based learning" and relates this to the context of increasing utilitarian goals and values of higher education. It argues that this presents challenges broader than the immediate teaching and learning environment and student experience, which also potentially impacts the future lives of graduates leaving university.
