Adult Learning in the Workplace. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 1998.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on adult learning in the workplace. "Coaching: Facilitating the Training of Subject-Matter Specialists. Development and Evaluation of an Andragogical Model of Continuing Vocational Education" (Jost Reischmann) describes the new insights into the problems of continuing vocational training that were gained when a model designed to train subject matter specialists in andragogical competencies was used in approximately 70 coaching situations. In "Knowing the Self through Fantasy and Imagination: Implications for Adult Learning in the Context of Work" (John M. Dirkx), a mythological perspective and principles borrowed from Jungian psychology are used to examine the construction of self-knowledge within work-based learning."Perceptions of Learning Systems in Organizations" (Anja J. Doornbos, Suzy J. Holleman, Ferd J. Van der Krogt, Ad A. Vermulst) reports on a study that compared the attitudes of 358 managers and workers at 9 Dutch crisis centers toward 5 learning system dimensions: work-oriented learning; external learning orientation; internal learning orientation; management orientation; and external orientation.
