Abstract: This symposium brings together researchers focused on issues of learning and identity development. We examine how the development of identity relative to a particular domain-specific learning environment--such as a leadership seminar, a nature trail guide program, a writing class project, or a teacher professional development course--can be better understood by looking at learners as whole persons, relative to their other experiences and identities. In other words, we investigate evolving identity within contexts by looking more broadly at participant identity across contexts. The session will present findings from this research, share methods for accomplishing this difficult work and making it manageable, discuss implications for further theory-building about identity, and provide recommendations for designing learning environments with identity development in mind.
