Myths and Brands in Vocational Education, 2nd Conference on History of Vocational Education in Europe

14.06.2013, 08:00 Uhr - 18.06.2013, 18:00 Uhr

University of Tampere, Finland Link

Deadline for registration is 30 April 2013.
"We invite junior and senior researchers to discuss critically and historically about global trends in policies, practices and discourses of vocational/work-related education. In 2013, the triumph of industry- and market-relevant learning in all education and in all parts of the world seems clear. Different models of (vocational) education are on sale at global skilling mall, while traditional solutions of relating work and education lose their credibility. (...) What we currently observe, is the exploitation of historical and cultural research in skilling industries and education export. Education providers and practitioners are expected to generate skilling brands, which would attract global customers – policy-makers and industries. Educational brands also advertise countries as smart environments for global investments and industries. Snap-shots with impressive images sell better than tedious interpretations of historical and cultural formation of educational solutions. Therefore, despite researchers´ good intentions, their findings may end up into myth-fabrication and promote marginalization of autonomous and serious research."
