Description

Reviews

This book intends to expand the perception of learning in the workplace and refocus the efforts of HRD practitioners and adult educators to cover all types of learning--beyond formal training to include informal and incidental learning. 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, presenting such concepts as knowledge management and the learning organization.  It is designed to help the novice as well as more experienced trainers, adult educators, and others develop workplaces conducive to learning.

"I recommend this book to  anyone involved in workplace learning, including employees, managers, and training practitioners.  Although the paradigm shift from training to workplace learning that Rowden suggests will not be new to all readers, his points are well explained and convincingly articulated.  Rowden is explicit in describing the value of having everyone in the workplace contribute to training and development.  I strongly agree that this is the way to maximize effectiveness and that employees ultimately function better when they have a vested and intimate interest in developing themselves." -- Nancy Alexander, Adult Learning, Volume 18, Numbers 1 & 2, Winter/Spring 2007
