A Survey of Personal and Environmental Factors Influencing the Engagement of Two Professional Groups in Informal Workplace Learning Activities
Lohman, Margaret C.
Online Submission
A survey of informal learning among 318 teachers and HRD professionals was conducted. Analysis of the data found that teachers rely to a greater extent on interactive informal learning activities while HRD professionals rely to a greater extent on independent learning activities. Data analysis also found that six environmental factors inhibit engagement in informal learning and seven personal characteristics enhance motivation to participate in informal learning. Implications for HRD theory, research, and practice are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
