The Many Faces of Biographical Learning
Hallqvist, Anders; Ellstrom, Per-Erik; Hyden, Lars-Christer
Studies in the Education of Adults, v44 n1 p70-84 Spr 2012
Biographical learning as a conceptual tool for investigating learning in life transitions has gained some recognition over recent years. In this article, we elaborate on this concept against the background of previous research and suggest a number of different modes of biographical learning. We further exemplify and discuss our suggestions in relation to an empirical research project on people in work transitions. (Contains 1 figure.)
