This study contends that phenomenography offers both a useful research method and practical tools for developing education and training for career practitioners. After introducing the basic principles of phenomenography, the study reviews previous research on its potential in developing pedagogical practices. It explores how the phenomenographic findings were utilized to design an online skills training programme for career practitioners. The study finds that phenomenographic research serves three practical pedagogical purposes: (1) revealing how learners understand certain concepts or phenomena, (2) elucidating how these understandings differ and (3) identifying critical aspects in helping learners to widen and deepen their understanding. käsitteet fenomenografia ymmärtäminen tutkimusmenetelmät pedagogiikka ohjaus (neuvonta ja opastus) koulutus käsitykset kehittäminen
