Billett, Stephen
Studies in the Education of Adults, v30 n1 p21-34 Apr 1998

Knowledge is constructed through engagement in problem solving; knowledge has conceptual, procedural, and dispositional dimensions; and the nature of the problem and different social practices influence the type of knowledge that is constructed.
