A lifeworld perspective on learning for the professions
Prof Gloria Dall’Alba
17:00 – 18:30, 15 Norham Gardens, OUDE, Seminar Room D
With its grounding in phenomenology, a lifeworld perspective offers rich and novel resources in researching learning for the professions. This seminar explores some of this potential through foregrounding the importance of our inevitable entwinement with others and things in social practice. It draws upon empirical research on learning in preparation for professional practice. A lifeworld perspective enables us to attend closely to integration of what aspiring professionals know or can do (an epistemological dimension) with how they are learning to be (an ontological dimension). In providing an integrated research framework, this perspective allows us to extend and enhance prevalent research approaches in ways that respond to contemporary challenges in professional practice. 
Gloria Dall’Alba is an Associate Professor in the School of Education at the University of Queensland, Australia. Her research draws upon hermeneutic phenomenology, especially related to higher education pedagogy, professional practice and qualitative inquiry. Her recent books are Learning to be Professionals (Springer) and an edited volume, Exploring Education Through Phenomenology: Diverse Approaches (Wiley-Blackwell).
