About the book: Now that learning is seen as lifelong and lifewide, what specifically makes a learning context? What are the resultant consequences for teaching practices when working in specific contexts? Drawing upon a variety of academic disciplines, Rethinking Contexts for Learning and Teaching explores some of the different means of understanding teaching and learning, both in and across contexts, the issues they raise and their implications for pedagogy and research. It specifically addresses
What constitutes a context for learning?
How do we engage the full resources of learners for learning?
What are the relationships between different learning contexts?
What forms of teaching can most effectively mobilise learning across contexts?
How do we methodologically and theoretically conceptualise contexts for learning?
