Abstract

It is no mere coincidence that the titles of both the UK’s Dearing Report (Higher Education in the Learning Society) and Australia’s West Review (Learning for Life) are based on the notion of lifelong learning. This organising principle-variously, ‘lifelong learning’, ‘learning for life’ and ‘the learning society-is a recasting of the privileging of the economic that has been characteristic of OECD countries since the late 1970s.
