In this subject, students explore the systems and practices that enable and constrain learning in workplaces – for example, a school, hospital, large corporation, government department or small NGO. This subject takes a strategic approach to the design of learning systems and practices for teams and organisations. Students explore contemporary approaches to organisational learning that are critiqued in terms of their relevance for workplace and professional learning in different contexts, with a focus on students’ own professional practice. Contextual factors that enable and constrain learning in organisations, such as power and culture, are also examined. Using their learning in the subject, students develop their own strategic plans to support learning in their workplace.
