Vocational Bildung and culture
2015 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
The paper presents a pilot study where a series of biographical conversations with craftmaster Wolfgang B. focus on Bildung-experiences in the context of his vocational education. The aim of such conversations is to develop a deeper understanding of Bildung in and through vocational education and training (VET) with a particular focus on didactical descriptions.
In the paper it will be argued that by looking at Bildung as part of VET we conduct research that also surfaces details on how the cultural context, as a kind of formal and informal curriculum, interacts with VET. Furthermore it expands on the character of competencies as well as didactical questions surrounding their development. The latter aspects featured most prominently in the pilot study whereas the paper will be exploring more of the former issues and how this specific case argues for the potential of vocational schools to provide Bildung affordances.
