Summary and significance of programme:
Universities are a critical element in the nation's knowledge infrastructure through knowledge production and professional development in what is now recognised as a context of uncertainty and rapid change. This programme foregrounds knowledge production and seeks to examine to what extent educational conditions and processes, including their assessment and evaluation, build capacity to approach knowledge adaptively. We advance that the latter is both an education phenomenon to be understood and a goal to be articulated. In linked projects across four areas: Research Training, Higher Education, Professionalism and Cultural Variation the programme explores the nature, development and expression of Adaptive Knowledge Production.
