Learning and Practice by Patricia F. Murphy

Book Description

By examining ideas about learning that transcend typical boundaries, such as school/workplace or home/school, this book emphasizes the socially negotiated and embedded nature of meaning-making and how learners learn to use the cognitive tools of their cultural community through participation in social activity. The editors argue that this is the means by which individual agency is extended and learners' identities, as forms of competency, are transformed. This book locates sociocultural understanding in a wide theoretical frame and demonstrates its implications for learning and assessment generally, covering a range of educational and workplace settings. The contributions challenge ways of understanding learning and thinking about practice, both teaching and assessment.Drawing on the international literature, this book is essential reading for students of curriculum, learning and assessment in all sectors from pre-primary to further and higher education. It is suitable as a core text for masters and taught doctorate programmes. It will be of interest to a range of professionals involved with curriculum, learning and the practice of teaching and assessment. It is also relevant to those in work-based and professional education and training, and informal educational settings. A unique collection in a field that is under-represented, it will also be of interest to an academic audience.
