Work-based learning and student agency: developing strategic learners
This paper will propose that a new approach to work-based pedagogy is required to enable mobile learners – often negotiating various physical, social and virtual learning environments – to develop greater personal agency and subsequent control over their Higher Education (HE) experience. A relatively new group of employer-sponsored, Foundation degree (Fd) students will be the focus of discussion, though it is hoped that issues raised are of wider relevance. Themes from ongoing research will offer perspectives on the importance of identity, purpose and relationships to students of health and social care, who have potential to become more strategic in their approach to learning.

Abstract

This paper will propose that a new approach to work-based pedagogy is required to enable mobile learners – often negotiating various physical, social and virtual learning environments – to develop greater personal agency and subsequent control over their Higher Education (HE) experience. A relatively new group of employer-sponsored, Foundation degree (Fd) students will be the focus of discussion, though it is hoped that issues raised are of wider relevance. Themes from ongoing research will offer perspectives on the importance of identity, purpose and relationships to students of health and social care, who have potential to become more strategic in their approach to learning.
