Reflecting critically on lifelong learning in an era of neoliberal pragmatism : instrumental, social, and cultural perspectives

conference contribution
posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by A Grace
In the wake of World War I, lifelong learning emerged internationally as a chameleonic concept and complex culture that has had diverse iterations over time and tides. The historical conspectus of this emergence provides a contextual backdrop for a critical analysis of keynote addresses given at the three previous biannual International Lifelong Learning Conferences (2000-04) hosted by Central Queensland University. Keeping this analysis in mind, a critical social pedagogy of learning and work is envisioned that provides a holistic approach to engaging in lifelong learning in today’s neoliberal, pragmatic milieu.
