    Exploring the Possibility of Applying Social Pedagogy as the Theoretical Basis for Maeul Learning Community

    Mihyang Kim | 2021, 17(1) | pp.1~25 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Maeul Learning Community based on linkages and cooperation between schools and local communities are emerging every day. However, in the related academia, research on educational history and educational philosophy to establish the theoretical foundation of the Maeul Learning Community is insufficient. This study focused on Social Pedagogy, which was conceptualized around Germany in the mid-19th century and is now spreading around the world. And we explored the possibility of applying as a theoretical basis for the Maeul Learning Community, looking at the history of social pedagogy, national and international trends, concepts and implications. The implications of the social pedagogy derived as a result of the study are the relationship between pedagogy and society, social problem solving and social transformation through pedagogy, realignment of the dynamics between individuals and society, pedagogy for the whole person based on humanism, and democracy and critical citizenship. The implications of this social pedagogy are in line with them of the Maeul Learning Community. These two emerged about 170 years apart. However, considering the fact that these two show the same context in terms of background, object, purpose, and method, it is believed that the viewpoint of philosophical anthropology and critical sociology on social pedagogy accumulated in the pedagogical history and pedagogical philosophy can contribute to the theorization of the Maeul Learning Community

    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to focuses on four-year university adult learners by understanding their experiences in university from an insider perspective in order to find out what educational meaning university life gives to adult learners. In response, we conducted in-depth interviews with 15 adult learners by utilizing narrative exploration methods. Through the semantic analysis of qualitative data,the following findings were obtained: Adult learners have sequentially experienced the determination and conviction to go to university, the meaning of university life, and the expansion of university experience. This shows that adult learners experience holistic growth in the areas of knowledge(knowing) as well as in the areas of behavior, participation, and identity through university life. Accordingly,the practical suggestion to maintain and develop educational meaning for adult learners is that universities should participate in university life and create academic culture by providing support for adult learners to develop basic learning skills, orientation, mentoring, and consultation with professors.

    Lee Ji Hye , Joon Heo , Jihyun Kim | 2021, 17(1) | pp.49~80 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study was conducted with the aim of exploring the outcomes, limitations, and alternatives of the Lifelong Learning City project being implemented with the aim of revitalizing local lifelong education. To this end, data were collected through 7 individual interviews and FGI for a total of 22 experts, including 8 policy experts and 14 on-site practitioners between July and August 2018. The analysis revealed three points. First, the lifelong learning city contributed positively to the expansion of individual learning opportunities and the lifelong education programs; however, the quality improvement of lifelong education programs for the capacity growth of individual residents and local communities is still weak. Second, meaningful local cases have been made through lifelong learning city projects based on the local community, but when it is led by the government, there is a limit to reflecting the the regional characteristics. Third, participation of the basic local governments in the expansion of lifelong learning city projects contributed to securing quantitative stability, but the future of lifelong learning cities seems uncertain due to the unstable support system and weak professional manpower. The significance of this study is that the insiders’ voice based on their own reflections on the Lifelong Learning City project was represented and that this research pinpointed the gaps between the claimed vision and the reality of the project, where we can take off to the next leve

    The purpose of this study is to explore the feasibility of using micro-degree as a competency-based education in domestic 4-year universities by analyzing the application cases of micro-degree that emerged as an alternative degree system. For the purpose of conducting the research, the concept and core components of micro-degree were defined, and cases of five domestic universities that attempted to introduce micro-degree were compared and analyzed. As a result of analyzing, there are four key components of micro-degree: education goals will be specific competency-oriented, curriculum completion period will be short-term, curriculum will be unstructured, and certified as a degree. Based on this, the analysis results of five universities were discussed, and based on the research results, policy alternatives required when introducing the micro-degree system in domestic four-year universities and academic discussions required for policy realization were derived.
