Developing a learning culture in the workplace
Harris, L. and Volet, S. (1997) Developing a learning culture in the workplace. Australian National Training Authority : Murdoch University, Murdoch University, Murdoch, W.A.
This study investigated the extent to which some Australian organisations are actively creating environments in which opportunities for learning are openly valued and supported and are built - where possible - into the immediate workplace environment. Included were seventeen organisations which have introduced approaches designed to encourage employees to build and to share knowledge in the workplace. In particular, the project focussed on:
the ways in which learning has been prioritised within organisations to encourage continuous improvement and growth;
the range of organisationally supported processes and practices that give people opportunities to learn in the course of their work, and that are a part of their immediate, workplace environment;
the ways in which a learning culture has been facilitated and supported as part of the change process in a range of organisations.
The case studies of these organisations describe - but do not evaluate - their learning in the workplace processes and practices. While those studies concentrated on Western Australia, the literature review took a national and international approach.
