Abstract [en]

In his work Educating the reflective practitioner, Schön (1987) discusses some of the challenges in teaching design-like occupations. His work there mostly engages with what might be termed the craft-like aspects of these occupations, ie. the combination of skills, knowledge and perception required to “get it” as he terms it. He makes clear that what he is not explicitly engaging with is the study of how a reflective practitioner also comes to develop: “wisdom in response to ethical dilemmas.” This important area of vocational education as it relates to, and ties in with, education for reflective practice is the focus of this paper. It will be discussed in relation to a case study of the vocational education biography of master craftsman Wolfgang B. taking some examples from his narrative to clarify the close relationship between Schön’s concept of reflective practice and one that will be developed here of vocational Bildung.
