[Xmca-l] Re: Literature review of first-person studies of apprenticeship



Hi Tom
I may be equally off-topic but could a corpus perspective provide some avenues....?

http://methodenpool.uni-koeln.de/situierteslernen/Teaching%20As%20Learning.htm might be a start for more foundational work (including the references).

Dear all,

Excuse me if this is question is a little off-topic, but knowing the interests of those reading XMCA, I thought that others might also benefit from this sort of thread.

I'm doing a PhD in which I will become an apprentice to study learning in a community of practice/through LPP. There are quite a few other studies like this, the most obvious being those in Michael Coy's 1989 book 'Apprenticeship', along with Trevor Marchand's 'Minaret Building...'
(2012), Eugene Cooper's 'Wood-carvers...' (1980), and others.

My problem now is that it is difficult to conduct a complete review of studies like these because of the varied language that they use to describe themselves. For example, some describe themselves as ethnography, others as phenomenological inquiry; some describe apprenticeships, while others research very loose communities of skilled practitioners. No combination of search terms (I have tried "first-person", "apprenticeship", "experiential", "ethnography" etc in various combinations) results in convincingly comprehensive results - I am afraid I am missing large swathes of literature.

My question is: Is anyone aware of recent edited collections of this type of work, or resources (database thesaurus terms, perhaps?) that would help in the search? I am also considering just 'crowd-sourcing' a list of publications, a strategy that might be of use to others if the list were made public.

Curious to hear your thoughts,
Tom
