Citation: Luzeckyj, A., 2009. Are the changing discourses of lifelong learning and student-centred learning relevant to considerations of the first year experience as foundation? In Proceedings of the First Year in Higher Education Conference: Preparing for Tomorrow Today: The First Year Experience as Foundation, 2009, 1-10.
Abstract: Utilising tools mainly provided by Foucault this paper explores how “lifelong learning” and “student-centred learning” have developed in neo-liberal times. An exploration of these discourses has particular relevance to the first year experience because their changing emphasis provides insight into how university qualifications are seen as a gateway to improved job prospects rather than valued as an opportunity to develop better educated citizens. I suggest these issues are imperative when considering the first year at university as a foundation year.
