Educating the reflective practitioner : toward a new design for teaching and learning in the professions by Donald A Schön( Book )
70 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,979 libraries worldwide
The problems that professional practitioners - such as lawyers, doctors or engineers - face are rarely straightforward and clear. They are frequently complex and lack right answers. Skillful professional practice often depends less on factual knowledge or rigid decision-making models then on the capacity to reflect before taking action in cases where established theories do not apply. Yet most professional schools only teach students standard scientific theories and how to apply them to straightforward problems - and so fail to equip future professionals with the skills they need to deal with the difficult problems of the real world
The reflective practitioner : how professionals think in action by Donald A Schön( Book )
108 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,954 libraries worldwide
A leading M.I.T. social scientist and consultant examines five professions'engineering, architecture, management, psychotherapy, and town planning'to show how professionals really go about solving problems. The best professionals, Donald SchOn maintains, know more than they can put into words. To meet the challenges of their work, they rely less on formulas learned in graduate school than on the kind of improvisation learned in practice. This unarticulated, largely unexamined process is the subject of SchOn's provocatively original book, an effort to show precisely how "reflection-in-action" works and how this vital creativity might be fostered in future professionals

Rethinking the development experience : essays provoked by the work of Albert O. Hirschman by Rethinking the development experience( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 558 libraries worldwide
This book critically reappraises ideas about learning and economic development advanced by Albert O. Hirschman, one of the great pioneers in the field. The contributors - distinguished economists, development theorists, social scientists, and practitioners - show how Hirschman's innovative ideas bear on the theory, policy, and practice of development in the 1990s. In a postscript, Albert O. Hirschman, who is now professor emeritus at Princeton University, reflects on the evolution of his ideas, his cognitive style, and his propensity for self-subversion. Two appendixes present a candid MIT faculty discussion of the essays and Hirschman's musings in response to particular chapters and questions raised by the participants
High technology and low-income communities : prospects for the positive use of advanced information technology by Bishwapriya Sanyal( Book )

"How will low-income communities be affected by the waves of social, economic, political, and cultural change that surround the new information technologies? How can we influence the outcome? This action-oriented book identifies the key issues, explores the evidence, and suggests some answers. Avoiding both utopianism and despair, the book presents the voices of technology enthusiasts and skeptics, as well as social activists."--Jacket

Organizational learning II : theory, method and practice by Chris Argyris( Book )
25 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 415 libraries worldwide
Organizational Learning II: Theory, Method, and Practice expands and updates the ideas and concepts of the authors' ground-breaking first book. Offering fresh innovations, strategies, and concise explanations of long-held theories, this book includes new alternatives for practitioners and researchers. Argyris and Schon address the four principle questions which cut across the two branches of the field of organizational learning. Why is an organization a learning venue? Are real-world organizations capable of learning? What kinds of learning are desirable? How can organizations develop their capability for desirable kinds of learning? With new examples and the most up-to-date information on the technical aspects of organization and management theory, Argyris and Schon demonstrate how the research and practice of organizational learning can be incorporated in today's business environment
Frame reflection : toward the resolution of intractable policy controversies by Donald A Schön( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 389 libraries worldwide
The authors argue - contrary to the prevailing wisdom in academia - that human beings can reflect on and learn about the game of policy making even as they play it. They write, "human beings are capable of exploring how their own actions may exacerbate contention, contribute to stalemate, and trigger extreme pendulum swings, or, on the contrary, how their actions might help to resolve the frame conflicts that underlie stubborn policy disputes."
