Abstract [en]

In Sweden there has been a debate during the past decade about the efficiency of higher education in relation to its´ applicability in work life. There is also a debate about the uneven recruitment as regards class and ethnicity. During the past decades the number of students in Swedish higher education has increased enormously. The author of the paper has the assignment to investigate whether Work integrated learning (WIL) would be a way to narrow education and work life to each other. As the project has not yet started focus in this paper is on the basic assumptions and values of WIL and on some critical points on the matter. The point is to elaborate a form at the organisational level and at the work place where the two partners are cooperating and generating knowledge that can be maintained and developed in the academy as well as in work life. It might be done by mutually developing knowledge that may be regarded as a synthesis of, and distinct from, what generally are named as scientific and practical knowledge. The author claims that this kind of learning and knowledge formation to a certain extent resembles of the Aristotelian concept of praxis.
