Throughout the studies there is an idea that teams learn (see also Watkins and Marsick, 1993) and while this conveys the idea of a group of 23 RATIONALE FOR THE PROVISION OF ADULT LEARNING people all learning the same thing together, it is quite misleading. Only individuals learn, but within a team there is a great deal of intersubjectivity, so that exposed to the same pressures different individuals might reach similar conclusions and decide together on a plan of action.

Vision Early writers about the learning society, Hutchins (1968:133) for instance, started with an educational vision that everybody would have access to part-time adult education throughout the whole of their lives, but it would also be a society which had ‘succeeded in transforming its values in such a way that learning, fulfilment, becoming human, had become its aims and that all its institutions would be directed to this end’.
