Abstract [en]

As acknowledge in earlier research the complexity of research in VET increases given by the fact that we are dealing with problems in different levels and with different character. At macro level research in VET is concerned, for example, with policy issues, international comparison as well as cross-national challenges of qualifications frame works and mobility of work forces. At what has been defined as meso-level, there are significant challenges from the need to deal with employability, structure of VET systems and dealing with drop-outs. Equally challenging are the problems at micro-level such as the complexity of organizing learning process in different contexts (classroom and workshop), the development of vocational knowing and technological literacy. From a Swedish VET research standpoint the paper attempt to look into how to approach research problems avoiding the divides that traditionally influence the selection of methodologies and theories, also which ontologies and epistemologies lays behind the ongoing research in VET and identify cases of multi-methodologies and multi-theoretical approaches worth studying closely and disseminating.

This presentation is part of a contribution to a expected broader discussion within the frames of the European VETNET.
