Abstract

Tertiary Education (TE) is facing a crisis which is partly the result of the Covid-19 pandemic but is also the cumulative effect of 30 years of marketization, privatisation and educational reforms that have turned education from a lifelong activity to an instrument of allocation to the labour market. The purpose of this paper is to think through the nature of this crisis for TE in the context of other global crises and to suggest how Tertiary institutions could start to contribute to a more progressive system of lifelong learning with a series of practical strategies.
