The Learning Paradox and the University
Bratianu, Constantin
Journal of Applied Quantitative Methods, v2 n4 p375-386 Win 2007
Universities are by their nature learning based organizations. They deliver knowledge to the students through teaching processes. Students acquire knowledge through learning processes, from their professors and from other different knowledge resources. Since learning is a fundamental process within any university, people may consider universities as being learning organizations. This is a major error, especially in the former socialist countries. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that the most universities are far away from being learning organizations, due to some organizational learning barriers.
