Authentic Professional Learning

Part of the Professional and Practice-based Learning book series (PPBL, volume 2)


From the holistic perspective taken in this research, the descriptions of APL throughout this chapter are imbued with nuances of the professional life-world, but because the focus is on the experience of learning, some life-world details are lightly sketched. To contextualise the phenomenological structure of APL, this chapter begins with a description of the professional life-world drawn from the complete data corpus, with respect to three aspects of the professional context: professional affiliations, employer organisations and local workplaces.
