Resumé

The aim for this study is to provide a deeper understanding learning from experience and problem solving in the context of work. I would like to explore imagination as a process of creating knowing from experience in teams that have solved a task together. My theoretical foundation is practice theory as it fits well to the study of learning in the context of work (Engeström, Gherardi, Wenger). But I wonder how this theoretical point of departure fits with the theories presented in the winter school, and I would need support to grasp the different theoretical positions.

I see different paths for this exploration: I could look into cultural practices and values concerning relations and interactions among colleagues who have solved a task together (Branco & lopes). Or I could dig into who “says” or “decides” what is preferred or favored in the sense of who seems to get the power in the team (Latour, Dunne & Raby).
