Educating for uncertainty: Ideas and challenges for schooling in a post-industrial society

Lucas Walsh
Price: $35.91

Associate Professor Walsh, from Monash University, addresses themes that he explores in more detail in Educating Generation Next: Young People, Teachers and Schooling in Transition (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016). He argues that the changing nature of the economy, and greater fluidity of life in general, requires more explicit development of literacies beyond numeracy and literacy, and of skills such as problem solving, communication and cultural competency. Rapid change in labour markets demands ongoing re-examination of aspects of teaching,learning and school leadership, and their connection to what happens post-school in equipping young people with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to learn and adapt to the challenges of contemporary society.
