Working and learning: developing effective performance at work
This extract from BU130 Working and learning: developing effective performance at work is taken from the introductory week of this module. In it, you will be asked to identify areas in which you would like to improve your performance at work and to think about how you might carry out projects in the workplace to learn how to achieve this improvement. If you choose to go on to study this module you will spend the first eleven weeks planning these projects (which we call work-based learning inquiries) and the rest of the module carrying them out. Throughout the module you will be directed to resources to help you to develop your study skills and also academic resources (Topic Guides) to help you to learn about the subjects of your work-based learning inquiries.
This OpenLearn course is an adapted extract from the Open University course.
