Letter: ILT - free choice or forced entry? (3)

August 10, 2001

Aside from the fact that a controversial pedagogical agenda is being imposed on highly skilled, quality-controlled professionals, Bernard Lisewski ( THES , July ), fails to grasp that the accreditation debate is taking place in the context of a political agenda that seeks to redefine the role and function of higher education on a shoestring budget.

It is as naive to assume that the ILT delivers proper educational support as it is to trust a body that individuals have been forced to join.

The arguments against this form of accreditation are alive and kicking and have support from a vast number of professionals.
