Self-Directed Learning: Present and Future
Induction Class Year
In recent years, many studies have been made of the way people approach learning. This current research looks further at learning by examining self-directed preferences in the workplace. A related area of understanding is that learners also fall somewhere along another linear scale pertaining to problem solving orientation. One end represents preferences toward solving problems independently and the other represents those who prefer solving problems within a group setting. The presentation describes a growing understanding of these differences and what this means for future ways of helping individuals deal with learning and changes in the workplace.
