"We Are Working for Your Future": The Rise of the Vocational University.
Symes, Colin
Australian Journal of Education, v43 n3 p241-56 Nov 1999
Argues against the increasing vocationalization of university education as exemplified by workplace approaches to learning. Suggests that this trend threatens the existence of the liberal university that was traditionally isolated from the economy and fostered knowledge acquisition for virtue rather than utility. Evidence of this trend is seen in the advertising and promotional stratagems now surrounding higher education. (Author/DB)
