A Comparative Analysis of the Informal Workplace Learning Experiences of Three Professional Groups
Lohman, Margaret C.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Research Conference in The Americas of the Academy of Human Resource Development (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
A survey was conducted to compare the informal workplace learning (IWL) experiences of three professional groups (information technologists, school teachers, and HRD professionals). Data analysis found that the three groups use interactive more than independent IWL activities. Five environmental factors inhibited engagement and nine personal characteristics enhanced engagement in IWL. Implications of these findings for theory, practice, and research in IWL are discussed.
