Useful for those wanting to understand how the ways we communicate both influence and are influenced by the structures and forces of contemporary social institutions. Combining theory and commentary with case-studies the book explores a multi-faceted approach to workplace education which aims to develop individual workers' skills as well as integrating learning, language and cross-cultural issues into work, communication and management practices. The book does not present formulae for success, but rather illustrates the complexities and challenges faced by educators as they learn to balance different, and often conflicting priorities. Written for a wide audience; language and literacy professionals, Human Resources staff, vocational trainers, managers, and students of education and linguistics."@en ;
