What Makes Workers Learn The Role of Incentives in Workplace Education and Training (Donald Hirsch)

Quantity in Basket:none
Code: 1-881303-24-1

This book examines what makes adults participate in education and training, particularly in relation to work. Effective participation depends on a suitable course being offered, on the offer being accepted, and on the learning being effective. The book, therefore, considers three kinds of incentives: to provide education and training, to accept learning opportunities, and to learn effectively. Year: Throughout the chapters it becomes clear that effective adult learning is being constrained by the failure of all the incentives to exist simultaneously. A recurring theme is the apparent failure of employers to provide an optimal level of training for their workers. The strong conclusion emerging from the book as a whole is that learning increasingly must become a genuinely collaborative activity between employer and employee. Pages: 224
