Description - Workplace Learning in Context by Anne Munro

As policy makers increase their focus on workplace learning as a way of improving organizational performance, the debate about the learning organization has grown. Workplace Learning in Context is an important contribution to this debate, as it counterbalances the often over-optimistic assumptions made about the future of work and learning. Arguing that without a contextualised analysis of the field, our understanding of the learning environment is limited, this book reconsiders the true role and nature of workplace learning in context. Grounded in original research, the book features case studies which illuminate how the workplace environment can provide both barriers to and opportunities for learning. It explores learning in different organizational contexts and different countries, sectors, types of public and private sector organization, and by different occupational groups. This multi-disciplinary approach provides a coherent perspective of the institutional, organizational and pedagogical contexts of workplace learning. This groundbreaking text will be welcomed by policy-makers, trainers, trade unionists and educators alike providing them with the intellectual tools required
