Pedagogy and the university : critical theory and practice

Outlines the main trends in university pedagogy within the context of academic practices and socio-economic developments. This book shows, among other issues, how to relate 'macro' issues to 'micro' issues, and challenge the paradigm of education as a purely 'technical rational' process designed to contribute to economic growth
