Learning How (and How Not) to Weld: Vocational Learning in Technical Vocational Education
Asplund, Stig-Börje; Kilbrink, Nina
Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, v62 n1 p1-16 2018
This article focuses on vocational learning in technical vocational education in upper-secondary school, with a special focus on the object of learning to weld. A concrete teaching situation where the learning object to weld is the focus of the interaction between a vocational teacher and an upper-secondary student was documented by a video camera and then analysed from two different perspectives: a conversation analytical perspective and a variation theory perspective. The combination of the two perspectives allows a study of learning that deals with issues regarding both form and content, which may increase our understanding of vocational learning in technical vocational education in upper-secondary school.
