The Workers' Educational Association of Victoria and the University of Melbourne: A Clash of Purpose?
Dadswell, Gordon
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v45 n3 p331-351 Nov 2005
The paper challenges an argument made by Alf Wesson in 1972. His argument was that the failure of the University of Melbourne Extension Board to work effectively with the Worker's Educational Association of Victoria was almost exclusively as a result of the poor management skills and personality of the Director of University Extension, Professor John Gunn. The paper argues that in fact it was the failure by four University of Melbourne inquiries to resolve a difficult situation. The lack of resolution was due to a complete misunderstanding by the University of the role of the Workers' Educational Association.
