Escaping the Tyranny of Belief
Wiswell, Albert K.; Wells, C. Leanne
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Conference (AHRD) (Austin, TX, Mar 3-7, 2004) p337-343 (Symp. 17-2)
This study describes an action research case study through which the dynamics of identifying and changing strongly held assumptions illustrate the differences between experiences that serve to strengthen beliefs from those that lead to learning. Theoretical considerations are presented linking cognitive schema, action science, attribution theory, and learned helplessness in relation to interventions that may be effective in addressing error in informal learning. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.) [For complete proceedings, see ED491481.]
