Pressures on working-life are intensifying. And people’s attitudes to work are changing. What people seek from work is diversifying. As are the formal and informal ways in which they find out what is going on, and work out what they can do about it.
If that is changing we must change.
But the underlying dynamics of what influences people and how they learn do not change so much. It is how they are re-applied to the emerging realities of working life that must change.
This section up-dates and re-aligns community-interaction theory and career-learning theory.
You will find here reprints of the original papers. But, alongside these, you will see them applied to a globalised commercial world, and a massive growth in the uses of information technology. Both the impact of economy and its use of technology set the scene for new action. But the new action is based on what we know - and it requires us to think again about how we can now best apply it.
The theories examined here are robust enough to accommodate that kind of new thinking for action.
