 Submission of abstract: 31st October 2014

: 31st March 2015
Facilitating higher-level learning through real workplace activity has emerged as a powerful pedagogical approach spanning national, disciplinary and cultural boundaries. Over the last two decades, a great deal has been learned and developed with regard to the structures, processes and systems that help to expedite such pedagogic approaches, but what has been learned about the diverse teaching, learning and facilitation practices at the heart of such innovative ways of engaging in higher education?
This Special Issue aims to collate and share contemporary global perspectives on how to facilitate significant learning, insight and change with busy professionals in work-based learning in higher education contexts. Within this call for papers, ‘learning through work’ is understood in a broad sense and includes, for example, experiential learning, work-integrated learning, internship learning, or service learning practices. This is an invitation to contribute to a strong evidence base in a dynamic and important area, with a view to stimulate innovation around the world.

We are interested in original research and case studies by academics and practitioners. Themes of special interest include, as examples:
• Facilitating deep reflection, profound or significant learning
• Applications of story, coaching, Theory U, or identity transformation
• Ubuntu perspectives, cosmopolitan learning or perspective transformation
