Abstract

The purpose of the paper is to examine the link between Higher Education learning and the reconstruction of the learning back in the workplace, in a case study organisation with graduands from the foundation degree. Results from the interviews and questionnaires suggested that the respondents felt the learning was used back in the workplace. This study provides examples of the reconstructed learning. In conclusion, there is clear evidence of learning and linkages between HE learning and the reconstruction of learning in the workplace using the activity theory model. It is the nature of the assessment objects and the philosophy and culture driving the degree that largely facilitates this reconstruction of learning. The paper seeks to contribute to the scarce data identified in the work based learning literature identified by Smith et al (2013).
