Reconceptualising learning in the knowledge society
bookposted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Bruce Knight
The new millennium challenges us all with increased access to knowledge, technological reconfigurations, changing patterns of interaction between and among individuals and other non-human 'actors', and encourages learners to be independent and productive lifelong learners. Thus, what type of learning will prepare learners with diverse needs to not only survive but also thrive in such an everchanging environment and what types of settings are appropiate for such learning? The papers in this edited collection explore the realities of a knowledge society and the implications for learning in it. They challenge traditional practice and structures, relate to high-level policy documents, create solutions to defined problems, and enhance client's learning.
