Portfolio careers and lifelong learning : who takes responsibility?
conference contributionposted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Teresa Moore
In this paper I explore the notion of portfolio careers for women. Globalization and economic rationalism draw attention to the changing nature of the workplace where these ideologies are shaping the performances of workers. When this context is coupled with discourses around lifelong learning, some significant questions are raised such as who takes responsibility for ensuring that workers involve themselves in lifelong learning, who gains from the promotion of lifelong learning, and what can be called legitimate lifelong learning within a portfolio career.
