Experience and Education is the best concise statement on education ever published by John Dewey, the man acknowledged to be the pre-eminent educational theorist of the twentieth century. Written more than two decades after Democracy and Education (Dewey's most comprehensive statement of his position in educational philosophy), this book demonstrates how Dewey reformulated his ideas as a result of his intervening experience with the progressive schools and in the light of the criticisms his theories had received. Analyzing both "traditional" and "progressive" education, Dr. Dewey here insists that neither the old nor the new education is adequate and that each is miseducative because neither of them applies the principles of a carefully developed philosophy of experience. Many pages of this volume illustrate Dr. Dewey's ideas for a philosophy of experience and its relation to education. He particularly urges that all teachers and educators looking for a new movement in education should think in terms of the deeped and larger issues of education rather than in terms of some divisive "ism" about education, even such an "ism" as "progressivism." His philosophy, here expressed in its most essential, most readable form, predicates an American educational system that respects all sources of experience, on that offers a true learning situation that is both historical and social, both orderly and dynamic.

Work experience is viewed in the National Policy on Education (1986) as "Purposive and meaningful manual work organized as an integral part of learning process and resulting in either goods or services useful to the community." Work experience is an effective education tool which makes the distinction between intellectual and manual work less marked. It makes the entry of youth into the world of work and employment smooth. It helps social and rational integration by strengthening the links the individual and community. It generates in the students the habit of hard and responsible work, which contributes indirectly to the increasing of the national productivity as it helps the students to develop insights into productive processes and the use of science.The work experience activities develop many social values like cooperation, mutual give and take tolerance, politeness, love, truthfulness etc. in children. They develop proper attitude towards work and life. Work experience activities are based on the ideals of social equality, justice and democracy.

"Experts note that in the 1990's, teamwork is emerging as the preferred means of organizing and managing businesses, schools, childcare organizations, and other human services programs. Throughout the country, schools and child care agencies are using a variety of team models to improve their programs, deliver effective services, and involve professionals, parents, and youth in decision making." "Drawing upon the expertise and insights of professionals who have directly implemented the team approach in education and child care, this timely guide provides a comprehensive view of teamwork in education and child care settings. Chapter authors touch upon both theory and practice as they outline the benefits and limitations of various models and discuss the process of implementing them in many different educational and child care settings."

Learning Teaching from Experience

Multiple Perspectives and International Contexts

What do teachers learn 'on the job'? And how, if at all, do they learn from 'experience'? Leading researchers from the UK, Europe, the USA and Canada offer international, research-based perspectives on a central problem in policy-making and professional practice - the role that experience plays in learning to teach in schools. Experience is often weakly conceptualized in both policy and research, sometimes simply used as a proxy for 'time', in weeks and years, spent in a school classroom. The conceptualization of experience in a range of educational research traditions lies at the heart of this book, exemplified in a variety of empirical and theoretical studies. Distinctive perspectives to inform these studies include sociocultural psychology, the philosophy of education, school effectiveness, the sociology of education, critical pedagogy, activism and action research. However, no one theoretical perspective can claim privileged insight into what and how teachers learn from experience; rather, this is a matter for a truly educational investigation, one that is both close to practice and seeks to develop theory. At a time when policy-makers in many countries seek to make teacher education an entirely school-based activity, Learning Teaching from Experience offers an essential examination of the evidence-base, the traditions of inquiry - and the limits of those inquiries.

Wandel, Verwandlung, Transformation – bestimmte Bildungsprozesse haben weniger mit der Aneignung von Wissen und Fertigkeiten zu tun, sondern mit einem grundlegenden, umfassenden Wandlungsprozess der gesamten Person. In der Studie „Bildungsprozesse des unternehmerischen Selbst“, die zur angewandten qualitativen Bildungs- und Sozialforschung zu zählen ist, zeigt die Autorin anhand von zwei lebensgeschichtlichen Erzählungen von Unternehmern, wie es zu einer Transformation zum unternehmerischen Selbst kommen kann und welche Strukturen und Besonderheiten diese Wandlungsprozesse aufweisen. Dabei verknüpft sie die Theorie spontaner Bildungsprozesse nach Arnd-Michael Nohl mit Ulrich Bröcklings Definitionen des unternehmerischen Selbst und geht darauf ein, welche Rolle der Zufall und die Intuition spielen.
