On-the-Job Learning.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on on-the-job learning. "Effectiveness of On-the-Job Learning" (Marcel R. van der Klink) presents the results of an empirical investigation demonstrating that on-the-job learning caused only a modest improvement in trainee's sales behavior but this improvement was maintained over a considerable length of time. "Finding Their Own Way: Informal Learning and Public School Teachers" (Margaret C. Lohman, Nicholas H. Woolf) focuses on a study that interviewed 18 teachers to examine the informal ways that public school teachers develop professional expertise. Data analysis shows teachers performed three roles during informal learning: knowledge exchanger, environmental scanner, and discoverer; engagement in these roles is influenced by organizational characteristics such as classroom location, allocation of resources, school policies, evaluation processes, and reward systems. "Learning from Experience: The Professional Practical Knowledge of Female Leaders in HRD" (Ruth Schmidle Lavin) explores the workplace experiences of three female human resource development (HRD) professionals and finds that each leader's practical knowledge was structurally composed of three dimensions that had been developed into a coherent system.
