AFONSO, Almerindo Janela. Higher education in the knowledge economy, the disregard of social sciences and humanities and teacher training. Avaliação [online]. 2015, vol.20, n.2, pp.269-291. ISSN 1414-4077.

In the first part of the article I make a brief reflection about the university within the context of the knowledge based economy. In a second part, considering essentially the Portuguese reality, I put in question the growing subalternization of the Social Sciences and Humanities and, among these, of the Educational Sciences. Finally, I draw attention to the fact that the current dilemmas of teacher training might be, at least in part, discussed as a consequence of the discrepancy between the potential importance of the knowledge delivered by the Educational Sciences and the lack of attention or devaluation they receive from society, policy-makers and sometimes even from the scientific community. In any case, these situations are never indifferent to the dominant visions and political-ideological orientations.

Palavras-chave : Higher education; Knowledge economy; Social sciences and humanities; teacher training.
