Autonomous Learning in the Workplace, Paperback / softback Book

Autonomous Learning in the Workplace Paperback / softback

Edited by Jill E. Ellingson, Raymond Andrew Noe

Part of the SIOP Organizational Frontiers Series series


Traditionally, organizations and researchers have focused on learning that occurs through formal training and development programs.

However, the realities of today's workplace suggest that it is difficult, if not impossible, for organizations to rely mainly on formal programs for developing human capital.

This volume offers a broad-based treatment of autonomous learning to advance our understanding of learner-driven approaches and how organizations can support them.

Contributors in industrial/organizational psychology, management, education, and entrepreneurship bring theoretical perspectives to help us understand autonomous learning and its consequences for individuals and organizations.

Chapters consider informal learning, self-directed learning, learning from job challenges, mentoring, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), organizational communities of practice, self-regulation, the role of feedback and errors, and how to capture value from autonomous learning.

This book will appeal to scholars, researchers, and practitioners in psychology, management, training and development, and educational psychology.
