CEL Seminar – 18th June 2014

Title: Putting different forms of knowledge to work in practice: conceptual issues, pedagogical strategies and enduring challenges.

When: Wednesday 18th June 2014 from 10.00 – 12.00 in BG11, Bournemouth House, Lansdowne Campus.

Facilitator: Professor Karen Evans, Chair in Education, Institute of Education, University of London.

The seminar aims to inject fresh thinking into the issue previously conceptualized as the ‘transfer’ of learning between settings and contexts, with particular reference to the relationships between subject-based and work-based knowledge; between theory and practice. Another approach is proposed, based on the concept of recontextualisation. Recontextualisation is, in contrast to transfer, a multi-faceted concept that refers to the idea that concepts and practice change as we use them in different settings. Drawing on some tenets of different traditions, a conceptual framework is established to describe and analyse the activities that facilitate movement of forms of knowledge from one context to another, through the embodiment of knowledge in curricula, pedagogic, workplace and personal practice.
