Narrowing the Gap Between the Academy and the Worlds of Work
Dalarna University, School of Technology and Business Studies, Business Administration and Management.
2005 (English)In: African Business and Development: Strategies for Economic Growth and Poverty Alleviation / [ed] Ayadi, Felix, Dar-es-Salaam, 2005, Vol. Proceedings 2005, p. 273-280Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic) Published
Abstract [en]

There is a need to improve teaching and learning methods in higher education. Firstly, knowledge is narrative and discoursive and has to be treated as such. Secondly, universities are expected to play a more pronounced role in the economic development of society. The context of this paper is the growing number of students and adult learners in universities who lack the educational training and background that is taken for granted in conventional teaching and learning methods, and, secondly, the ideas and outlines of an action oriented and reflective educational practice that has its roots in American pragmatism.
