Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The purpose of this book is to tackle the question of transition and transformation in educational and learning processes and contexts. Typical of today's society and world of work is rapid change which, in turn, poses challenges to educational institutions: How to educate skilled workforce, professionals and citizens who are able not only to cope with change but also to act as change agents? How to prepare students and employees for various kinds of transition and transformation processes and situations in their educational and working career and in their personal lives? Learning processes and learning outcomes themselves are expressions of transitions and transformation. During young people's and adults' educational paths they are confronted with more or less radical transitions which involve moving from one environment to another. How to organize life-wide guidance systems and links between different educational levels so that they in best possible way support transitions? Furthermore, in a rapidly changing world people need to learn new skills and knowledge throughout their lives, and for many moving from one occupation or profession to another becomes necessity. The book will cover these and other topics that relate to various forms of change situations and processes in educational and learning settings.
