Workplace Learning Issues.
This document contains four symposium papers on workplace learning issues. "The Changing Role of Training Consultants in Organizing Work-related Learning" (Rob F. Poell, Geoff E. Chivers) draws on interviews with training consultants in 19 different organizations to describe how their role is changing in response to the trend toward self-directed learning in the workplace. "Using Study Circles in the Workplace as an Educational Method of Facilitating Readjustment after a Traumatic Life Experience" (Barbara Barski-Carrow) explains how study circles can serve as a "democratic" interactive adult learning format that can compensate for the lack of training provided to managers and coworkers about the various stages of trauma recovery and ways of facilitating the workplace reentry of workers who have experienced a traumatic life event. "Learning-Activities of Junior Managers: Findings of a Quantitative Pilot-Study" (Eline S.K. Lankhuijzen) examines ways and the extent to which management tasks are learned. "Integrating Learning with Working--A Reconception of the Role of Workplace Learning" (Richard J. Torraco) uses in-depth accounts of actual work activity and the theories of situated learning and distributed cognition to develop a new conception of the role of learning interventions in the workplace.
