Learning Management: Emerging Directions for Learning To Learn in the Workplace. Information Series No. 320.
Cheren, Mark E., Ed.; And Others
This collection, which should be of particular interest to adult education teachers, trainers, and researchers, suggests new models for attaining learning management skills to facilitate on-the-job learning. In the introduction, Mark E. Cheren discusses the need for new models and terms and examines the concepts of learning management and situational learning. In her paper entitled "Developing Learning Skills," Sylvia Downs recounts her work in learning skills development in England and covers supporting research, learning blockages, categories of learning, and applications in commercial organizations. Howard S. Barrow's paper, "Learning Management in the Context of Small Group Problem-Based Learning," describes a problem-based learning method that was originally developed for medical students and practicing physicians. The approach enables professionals to monitor their own learning needs during the problem-solving process, thereby enabling the learner to become less dependent on the teacher (who becomes a facilitator of learning). In a paper entitled "Learning Management Skills Development as an Integral Part of Training and Development," Mark E. Cheren suggests several ways of developing learning management competence within the context of training and development activities such as orientation programs, courses and workshops, learning resource centers, and self-instructional materials. The organizational perspective on learning management in discussed by Robert Smith in a paper entitled "Learning to Learn in the Workplace." An appendix containing a working definition of self-directed learning and a list of 50 references are included. (SK)
