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.
