Description - Flexible Learning and HRD by Viktor Jakupec
Recent challenges facing higher and tertiary education such as the impact of globalisation and the emergence of new technologies, have called for a radical reconceptualisation of the teaching-learning nexus. This book addresses contemporary contexts of flexible learning and its practices, and provides insights about directions in which education and training providers may be required to follow in order to implement flexible learning in a variety of settings. Key issues and debates include: workplace based learning. Topics covered include: * the social and economic dimensions of flexible learning and delivery * the implications of globalisation and internationalisation for higher education * flexible learning, knowledge and power * institutional strategies for implementing flexible learning and delivery * practising flexible learning through media and new technologies.
By focusing on practical, theoretical and critical perspectives, contributors from the UK, Canada and Australia present a state-of-the-art picture of the conceptualisation of flexible learning and the implications of flexible delivery systems for individuals, educational organisations and industries interested in work-place based learning.
