Christensen, Jonas (2010)
Publisher: Education Inquiry
Journal: Education Inquiry
Languages: English
Types: Article
Subjects: resilience, social ties, network, entrepreneurship, development ecology
How academic disciplines are constituted and the related professional development must be viewed within their wider social, political and economic aspects. When studying the organisation, transformation and spheres of influence of professions, the Development Ecology model provides a tool for understanding the encounter between societal, organisational and individual dimensions, a continual meeting point where phenomena and actors occur on different levels, including those of the organisation and society at large. However, the theory of development ecology may be questioned for how it looks at the individual’s role in relation to other actors in order to define and understand the forces underlying the professional development and constitution of academic disciplines. Factors relating to both the inside of the individual and social ties between individuals and in relation to global factors need to be discussed.Keywords: resilience, social ties, network, entrepreneurship, development ecology(Published: 1 June 2010)Citation: Education Inquiry Vol. 1, No. 2, June 2010, pp.117–126
