Integrating Alternative Educational Pathways: Challenges and Issues
Brewer, Ann M.
Continuing Higher Education Review, v72 p57-73 Fall 2008
The paper examines the issue of educational pathways, including a brief overview of the higher education regulatory framework and market forces in Australia, particularly as recent policy reforms and political aspirations affect them. It highlights the key challenges and outlines a potential model for integrating vocational and higher educational pathways. Negotiating with internal and external stakeholders, position power, market and financial analysis may be the most successful levers in this change process. Three market research studies targeting prospective students, parents of prospective students, and the general resident population in Sydney provide evidence of prospective consumers' intention, motivation, and reaction to the proposed model. A list of references and resources is included. (Contains 1 table and 2 endnotes.)
