Unlearning as a lifelong learning strategy: An important pathway for transitions
Unlearning is of increasing interest to educators and human resource development professionals alike. Whilst recognition of prior learning is widely accepted, it is less likely that development programs acknowledge this prior knowledge as a potential block to the acquisition of new knowledge and behaviours. A paper presented at the 2004 International Lifelong Learning Conference Windeknecht and Hyland, 2004) proposed a model of unlearning. As a result of subsequent research, the model has been further developed. This paper shows the evolution of the model and presents initial findings from a range of case-study individuals.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
