The Increasing Underemployment and Decreasing Job Control of Highly Qualified Employees: Implications for Further Training and Workplace Change featuring David Livingstone

April 20, 2018 @ 12:00 am CDT

April 20, 2018

Co-sponsored with the Office of Equity, Sustainability and Democracy.

Highly qualified professional employees are widely regarded as central strategic resources for “knowledge economies”. However, there is mounting evidence that these “knowledge workers” are experiencing both increasing underemployment and decreasing job control, as well as diminishing participation in both further education and job-related informal learning. Prospects for employment and educational reforms to reverse current trends will be assessed.

D.W. Livingstone is Canada Research Chair in Lifelong Learning and Work and Professor Emeritus at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto.
