  • The first two decades of the 21st century have contributed a growing body of research, theorisation and empirical studies on learning and work. This Handbook takes the consideration of this topic into a new realm, moving beyond the singular linking of identity, learning and work to embrace a more holistic appreciation of learners and their life-long learning.
    Across 40 chapters, learners, learning and work are situated within educational, organisational, social, economic and political contexts. Taken together, these contributions paint a picture of evolving perspectives of how scholars from around the world view developments in both theory and practice, and map the shifts in learning and work over the past two decades.
    Part 1: Theoretical perspectives of learning and work
    Part 2: Intersections of learning and work in organisations and beyond
    Part 3: Learning throughout working lives and beyond
    Part 4: Issues and challenges to learning and work
