Challenges to Adult, Professional and Vocational Education
Bohlinger, Haake, Jørgensen, Toiviainen and Wallo (Eds.)
Number 4 of the series: Research on the Education and Learning of Adults
AVAILABLE ONLINE AS OPEN ACCESS BOOK!
This book analyses the challenges of globalisation and uncertainty impacting on working and learning at individual, organisational and societal levels. Each of the contributions addresses two overall questions: How is working and learning affected by uncertainty and globalisation? And, in what ways do individuals, organisations, political actors and education systems respond to these challenges?
1 focuses on the micro level of working and learning for understanding
the learning processes from an individual point of view by reflecting on
learners’ needs and situations at work and in school-work transitions.
Part 2 addresses the meso level by discussing sector-specific and organisational
approaches to working and learning in times of uncertainty. The chapters
represent a broad range of branches including public services (police work),
the automotive sector and the health sector (elderly care). Finally, Part
3 addresses the macro level of working and learning by analysing how to
govern, structure and organise vocational, professional and adult education
at the boundaries of work, education and policy making.
