Vanthournout, Gert; Noyens, Dorien; Gijbels, David; Van den Bossche, Piet – Vocations and Learning, 2014
Workplace learning is becoming a central tenet for a large proportion of today's employees. This seems especially true for so-called knowledge workers.

Endedijk, Maaike D.; Bronkhorst, Larike H. – Vocations and Learning, 2014

van der Sluis, Margriet E.; Reezigt, Gerry J.; Borghans, Lex – Vocations and Learning, 2014
It is well-known that the quality of vocational education and training (VET) depends on how well a given programme aligns with the values and interests of its stakeholders, but it is less well-known what these values and interests are and to what extent they are shared across different groups of stakeholders. We use vignettes to quantify the…

Sandal, Ann Karin; Smith, Kari; Wangensteen, Ragne – Vocations and Learning, 2014
Vocational education, as part of the Norwegian upper secondary education, includes both school-based learning and workplace learning. While school-based learning is characterized by formal structures and guided by aims in the curricula, workplace learning is often informal, incidental and directed by the daily work-tasks. Assessment in workplace…

Poortman, Cindy L.; Reenalda, Marloes; Nijhof, Wim J.; Nieuwenhuis, Loek F. M. – Vocations and Learning, 2014
Workplace learning is considered an effective strategy for the development of vocation, career and professional identity. Dual training programs, in which learning at a vocational school and learning at work in a company are combined, are seen as strong carriers for skill formation processes. In this study we explore workplace learning in dual…

Leicher, Veronika; Mulder, Regina H.; Bauer, Johannes – Vocations and Learning, 2013
Learning from errors is an important way of learning at work. In this article, we analyse conditions under which elder care nurses use errors as a starting point for the engagement in social learning activities (ESLA) in the form of joint reflection with colleagues on potential causes of errors and ways to prevent them in future. The goal of our…
