Learning in the Knowledge Age, where the Individual Is at the Centre of Learning Strategy and Organisational Success
Kostos, Carmel
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v46 n1 p75-83 Apr 2006
Adult learning practitioners are being challenged to prepare for a revolution in the way workplace learning outcomes will be delivered. Recent thinking on the future of work by a number of leading business authorities from around the world reports that changes in the way students are being educated for work and the demands on workers in the knowledge age will force a major shift towards learner-centred organisational development strategies. These changes will require broad, strategic solutions, including a re-think on the capabilities and qualifications of those involved in developing people and the formulation of new policies and practices that enable and support learners as they re-focus their careers into the new world of work.
