This paper explores the conceptual and methodological problems arising from several empirical investigations of professional education and learning in the workplace.
1. To clarify the multiple meanings accorded to terms such as ‘non-formal learning’, ‘implicit learning’ and ‘tacit knowledge’, their theoretical assumptions and the range of phenomena to which they refer.
2. To discuss their implications for professional practice.
A largely theoretical analysis of issues and phenomena arising from empirical investigations.
