Is industrial and labour relations a misfit as an academic programme floated in specialised universities of education?(2014)
AbstractSome of us who drank from the pot of wisdom and knowledge and who benefited from the technical skills and professional understanding advanced by the premier university of education, Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, consider the upkeep and continuous development of this vast-growing university as a serious subject of concern. Among other issues considered as germane to the university in her quest for excellence in teaching, research and community service, the recent deletion of some courses in the university, is one of such areas of worries to some of us who hold the institution in high esteem. For the love of dear alma mater; for the sake of integrity and selflessness; in pursuit of truth and knowledge and; in distinguishing what ought to be from what is, it behoves of us to no longer remain silent on this contending issue of courses deletion in TASUED. Since ILR and other courses have been deleted, there has been a growing and diverse opinion about the definition, intellectual boundaries, and major premises of the fields of industrial relations, as well as its relevance in higher institutions specialising in pedagogy. Hence, this write-up attempts to crystallise the relevance and essence of Industrial and Labour Relations (ILR) as a field of study offered in TASUED while advocating for its resuscitation. The need for its re-inclusion and resuscitation becomes more pronounced considering the height which the field has currently attained on the global scale.
