Whose Model Student? Learner-Centered Discourse and the Post-Secondary Privatization Agenda
Hoben, John
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n180 p71-98 Nov 2016
Using discourse analysis, the author identifies contradictions in privatization discourse in order to highlight how state-based educational reform has used a normative language of student interests to fundamentally redefine the nature of the university's mission and its faculty based governance structures. The author proposes a counter-discourse that creates broader discursive forums for those who view the university as a public and democratic intellectual space. A primary aim is to create affinity identities in which the social and moral agency of faculty and students is recognized and used to challenge the ongoing disruptive corporatization agenda in higher education.
