Authentic Education for Meaningful Work: Beyond “Career Management Skills”


Back to the list

Nov. 30, 2021

Ronald G. Sultana, Professor of Educational Sociology and Comparative Education at the University of Malta and recent recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from Université Laval

The centrality of work in curricula is justified by the fact that “meaningful work” retains its importance as a feature of a fulfilling life. Yet much of work available in neoliberal economies is increasingly a source of distress, hardship, exploitation and abuse. Professor Sultana thus makes a case for an authentic work education program that helps individuals understand the nature of meaningful work, aspire to it and to decode the causes that hinder access to it.
