Ways of Learning: Suggestions for an Uncertain Future
MetadataShow full item record
Human resource managers have to keep up to date with new technologies, with changes in employment laws, business strategies as well as knowing what kind of people are coming out of the educational system. Keeping up to date on new learning methods and finding time to be creative is challenging. In this chapter a range of learning methods are presented and the challenges of adapting various learning forms to match the needs of ever-changing organisations is discussed. The starting point for understanding learning is based upon the concept of workplace learning (WPL). The study is builds on interviews carried out in a range of organisations in Norway and the main finding is that that different business sectors are interpreting and reinterpreting ways of learning. The potential for using these learning forms in different businesses and public sector organisations is discussed. This chapter contributes to our understanding of methods for working with skills and upskilling in an uncertain future.
