Dynamic Concept Analysis (DCA) is a method for integrating information into conceptual models that was first developed by Kontiainen when considering concepts of interaction between students and supervisors. More recently, there has been an increase in the use of this methodology as an educational research tool, considering such issues as adult learning, moral judgment, decision-making and higher education (Kontiainen, 2002)
The DCA approach enables researchers to analyse complex phenomena using conceptual models. In our previous research conducted on tacit skills and work re-entry, the method has assisted in clarifying the interrelationships between learning and skill recognition in different environments (see Evans et al, 2004 for more discussion and examples).
