Towards More Socio-Culturally Sensitive Research and Study of Workplace E-Learning
Remtulla, Karim A.
International Journal of Adult Vocational Education and Technology, v1 n3 Article 3 p29-45 2010
This article advocates workplace adult education and training researchers and scholar practitioners interested in career and technical education (CTE), adult education and technology, and who are attempting social and cultural critiques of workplace e-learning. The emphasis on the technological and artefactual in workplace e-learning research and study are not producing the expected learning outcomes from workplace adult education and training to the degree anticipated. Given increasingly global and diverse workforces, the research and study of workplace e-learning as a socio-culturally "negotiated" space may be an alternate approach toward a more socially and culturally informed understanding of adult learning from workplace e-learning.
