Changing Cultures of Competitiveness in Education

Date: 23 January 2009 Time: 00.00-00.00 pm

This seminar explores the role and impact of competitiveness in education at institutional, national, regional scales. While it is discursively mobilised through institutional and sectoral restructuring and 'lifelong learning' (Robertson 2005) to enhance competitiveness (Slaughter & Rhoades 2004; Marginson 2006), education is also central to cohesion (Green & Preston 2001; Castells & Himanen 2002; OECD 2006). It focuses on these policies, their tensions, and their outcomes.
