Ginny Critcher and Justin Darley had a meeting with Ian Kemble of Portsmouth University this week, to discuss their new MA in Technical Communication and areas where we might help them.
One of the topics that came up was whether or not they should include technology related topics. On the one hand, you can argue that technology gets out of date very quickly, on the other you could argue that you’re unlikely to get work if you don’t know the tools of the trade.
Last week Ellis Pratt heard Thomas Power and Dr. Gerry Lemberg (of the London Business School) both claim that the concept of a job (i.e being an employee) will pretty much end in our life times. If so, the education system will need to change considerably in order to prepare students for the real world. Are they right?
