Considering Trade Union Education as a Community of Practice.
Ball, Malcolm J.
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v22 n3 p297-310 May-Jun 2003
Using the framework of communities of practice, data were collected from a labor union education program (152 survey responses, 3 life histories). Despite negative early schooling experiences, respondents saw union involvement as a rationale to participate in formal education. Union education was depicted as situated learning through participation in the context of a community of practice. (Contains 52 references.) (SK)
