Learners and organizations: competing patterns of risk, trust, and responsibility.

Land, R.



L. Leišytė

U. Wilkesmann


This chapter attempts to addresses one of the central concerns of this volume, namely how discernible trends in teaching and learning might change organizational structures and behaviours. The principal research question of this chapter is to consider how shifts towards a corporatist consumer discourse of learning, arising from intensified global competitiveness, combined with a changed tempo of organizational life driven by technological speed, are creating tensions within traditional modes of organization of teaching and learning.
