Description

The further education (and skills) sector in England has been viewed as a backwater of educational research compared to the other sectors. This comparative lack of research and related publications may be due in part to the huge diversity of the sector. Further Education, Professional and Occupational Pedagogy addresses some of the gaps by bringing together empirical research and theoretical frameworks to give a coherent understanding of the sector, emphasising the occupational experiences of deliverers, alongside their pedagogic and life experiences. This book also includes investigations on the education of professionals in the higher education sector.

The overall theme of this book relates to the teaching and learning of work-related provisions in further and higher education. The book covers topics such as FE teachers' emotional ecology, their professional identities, a systematic literature review of FE teachers' professional identities, a reconceptualisation of widening participation from a teaching perspective, pedagogic implications of teachers in professional education, and curriculum formation of creative professionals in higher education.

This book will be vital reading for researchers and academics in the fields of professional learning, teacher training and education, and vocational and occupational education. It will also appeal to policy-makers, teacher educators and education professionals.

Reviews

"In this collection, Sai Loo explores professional knowledge and identity, the wider professional curriculum and the relationship between occupational expertise and pedagogy, widening participation, and the construction of knowledge and competence. These themes, and more, are discussed and brought together through robust theoretical as well as empirical inquiry. Sai Loo relates these themes to curriculum, to knowledge, to policy, and to teaching, drawing on the work of key theorists including Basil Bernstein, Michael Eraut, and Christopher Winch. This admirable volume has much to offer for researchers across both the further and higher education sectors."
