Learning in Everyday Practices - LiEP
Following an expansive view of learning as lifelong and life-wide it could be argued that learning interactions emerge across a wide range of practices beyond formal education. Everyday activities, experiences and relations are important sites for learning, not least when it comes to how people create and establish their identities – who they are, who they are supposed to be, and who they will become.
In the research group Learning in Everyday Practices we explore contexts where adults, teenagers and children spend their daily life (e.g. social media, families, leisure, communities and peer groups) as potential learning spaces. For instance, our research interests concern how teenagers learn to play computer games, how children learn to travel alone from school to the soccer field, how adults learn to deal with parenting obligations, or generally how people in and through the consumption of media and popular culture learn to understand and deal with their surrounding world. Some key concepts are participation, subjectification, governmentality, public pedagogy, lifestyle, literacy, competence, social inclusion/exclusion, and social- and cultural capital. Drawing upon multiple theoretical frameworks and methodological designs, our aim is to better understand and critically discuss the complexities of learning in contemporary society.
The Discourse Seminar is an interdisciplinary working forum for interaction researchers that meets once a month.
The LiEP research group meets regularly (once a month) for seminars and workshops. At these sessions we present our work in progress, discuss theoretical frameworks and methodological issues, and share ideas for future research.
The members of the group work in various research projects such as “Unaccompanied traveling children”, “Social Media and Parenthood”, “Prisoners and learning”, "LIM: Language, Integration, Media", “Digital tools in Early Childhood Education and Care” and “Social Life, Social Spaces and Social Distance”.
