Putting Knowledge to Work: re-contextualising knowledge through the design and implementation of work-based learning at higher education levels

The Institute of Education published the findings of their research project 'Putting Knowledge to Work' in 2009.

The research challenges conventional notions of academic knowledge as context-free and it demonstrates that there are complex processes of ‘re-contextualising’ knowledge through the design and implementation of work-based learning at higher education levels. This short guide has been produced to encourage curriculum development teams to draw upon the research and think through carefully and in depth the purposes and processes involved in work-based learning.
