Workplace Learning: Principles and Practice
Krieger Publishing Company
Robert W. Rowden
This book intends to expand the perception of learning in the workplace, and refocus the efforts of HRD practitioners and adult educators in today's fast-changing organizations. While integrating theory and practice about the process of how adults acquire the knowledge and skills that help them perform their jobs better, the book also examines the context within which adults form communities of practice, including such concepts as knowledge management and the learning organization. It is designed to help the novice and more experienced trainers, adult educators, and others develop workplaces conducive to learning.
