Expertise: Adult learning and counseling.
The Department for Adult Learning and Counseling, the Norwegian University of Technology and Science, Trondheim.
Our research topics are cross-disciplinary, and focus on learning processes, counseling and management of learning in a life-long perspective. We understand adult learning in an extended sense, as the acquisition of competence and knowledge that takes place in all the different environments a person naturally belongs to – or chooses to be part of. Such learning environments may be formal (in learning institutions, basic or higher education), informal (i.e. at work, through dialog, collaboration and master learning) or non-formal (everyday life learning, experience).
Our research is carried out at different levels (individual, corporate, political), and with a variety of research methods (quantitative, qualitative, q-methodology).
At the individual level we study the processes (i.e. motivation, ambitions) that lead up to participation in learning situations, how people go about the opportunities and challenges of learning in adulthood (i.e. coping with barriers), the outcome of education and acquisition of competence. In short, what happens when adults, given the time and opportunity, get involved in the transformative process that learning and education may set off in their lives.
At the corporate level we study organizational change and the implications for competence needs. This involves management and leadership issues.
At the political level we study the impact of different educational reforms on adult learning practices, with special attention to competence needs in the labour market.
