TLRP: Recognition of tacit skills and knowledge in work re-entry: mdelling of learning processes and outcomes
The paper investigated the contributions of non-formal prior learning experiences and the effects of moving between contexts of over time. An innovative approach of the Dynamic Concepts Analysis (DCA) modelling of individual cases provided a better understanding of adult returners’ experiences in re-entering work. The paper is based on the project Recognition of tacit skills and knowledge in work re-entry’, carried out as part of the Economic and Social Research Council funded Research Network ‘Improving Incentives to Learning in the Workplace’. This project has significantly advanced our understanding of how environments can expand, consolidate or undermine the learning gains of adults entering new workplaces through retraining. The paper is based on a material presented by the authors at the second international conference on lifelong learning held at the Centre for Research in Lifelong Learning, Glasgow, UK (2003).
