Learning Interdisciplinarity: Sociocultural Perspectives on Academic Work
Lattuca, Lisa R.
Journal of Higher Education, v73 n6 p711-739 Nov-Dec 2002
Sociocultural theories of learning provide an analytical lens for exploring faculty work. By conceptualizing faculty work as a learning process that is both cognitive and social, sociocultural perspectives highlight the ways in which faculty learning and work are enabled and shaped by the contexts in which they occur, but also how learning and work, in turn, shape existing contexts and enable new practices. (Contains 1 table and 7 notes.)
