CR&DALL Seminar 2010 Series: "Learning, Democracy and Community: Two International Studies on Engagement and Change"

Seminar Series: 

Event Date(s): 

Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 14:00

Learning, engagement, community, social change, citizenship, democracy, politics and power have been at the heart of the historic discourses of adult education throughout the world. The past 25 years have seen major shifts in the government funding of the education of adults towards market-oriented, vocational, professional and generally instrumental approaches. At the same time there are new discourses of ‘engagement’ emerging within higher education institutions and new discursive spaces for critique, study and reflection. This presentation looks at two distinct studies being undertaken by Budd and Darlene respectively.

CR&DALL Seminar 2010 Series: "Learning to Do: Learning Practice"

Seminar Series: 

Event Date(s): 

Thursday, 11 November, 2010 - 14:00

Presentation: Most theories of learning focus primarily on the cognitive dimension but recognise that the action one is significant.  If we accept Husserl’s claim that we live in our acts – then the ‘doing’ dimension should actually receive at least equal emphasis to the cognitive. This seminar starts with my own work on learning and then explores a theory of learning by doing.  Thereafter it focuses on professional practice and offers a theory of learning practice which could impinge on our understanding of learning in the workplace.
