Exploring narratives of vocational Bildung: A biographical approach
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Education.
2015 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

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 through empirical studies of VET biographies significantly enriches our understanding of Bildung in vocational contexts. Furthermore, explorative biographical studies hold the potential to surface different kinds of Bildung-narratives as well as different themes. The former aspects featured most prominently in the pilot study whereas the paper will be exploring more of the latter issues and how such an explorative study can lay the foundation for more extensive narrative research in connection with Bildung and professional development.
