This paper interrogates my personal experiences of being “situated” as an educator within a regional context. Current dominant discourses encourage individuals to take responsibility for their own lifelong learning and imply there are opportunities available in regional locations to use this knowledge and “education”. While the desire to contribute to the social fabric of place and community may be keenly felt, the impact of globalization and economic rationalism ultimately constrains opportunities and undermines lifelong-learning discourses. I conclude this paper by suggesting that Central Queensland University could play a role in building sustainable regional communities through fostering local growth in employment opportunities.
