Joondalup Learning Precinct: Beyond Partnerships and Pathways to Engagement in a Learning City
Keywords:Higher Education, Educational Partnerships, Community Engagement
AbstractThree educational institutions are working together with community partners to provide a range of educational programs, training opportunities, research, and human and physical resources in a rapidly growing regional centre. A multijaceted array of collaborative programs and partnerships meant to create a Learning Precinct in Joondalup, Western Australia, have grown into a vision for a "Learning City" where the elements of learning and education are integrated with each other and with all relevant community institutions. This integration facilitates the learning needs of local residents with a view to making the community more flexible, responsive to change (especially global economic and technological changes), and collaborative at the local or regional level.
