Summary "Work-based learning is a radical approach to the notion of higher education. Students undertake study for a degree or diploma primarily in their workplace and their learning opportunities are not contrived for study purposes but arise from normal work. The key responsibility at the university is the recognition, assessment and accreditation of the learning." "This volume locates work-based learning as part of major changes influencing universities; includes contributions from many of the pioneers of work-based learning; provides accessible accounts of the teaching, learning and assessment practices involved; examines the impact of this innovation on the institutions in which it is introduced; and explores the changes in academic work practices associated with work-based learning."--BOOK JACKET
