Developing students as learners - varied phenomena, varied contexts and a developmental trajectory for the whole endeavour
AbstractThis paper is offered as a conceptual map to help 'learning development' to distinguish its various activities and to locate these activities and approaches in relation to pedagogic theory and empirical evidence. It highlights variations in context that have profound implications for what 'learning development' might realistically focus on. The paper also examines parallel developments in 'educational development' over the past 30 years to see if that offers pointers to how 'learning development' might evolve.
