Workplace learning with coaching and mentoring


This free course, Workplace learning with coaching and mentoring, will help you consider some of the theoretical and practical issues involved in planning and managing learning and talent development programmes for people in your organisation. You will also explore ideas about coaching and mentoring, as these have become prevalent learning and development tools in contemporary organisations.

During the course, you will learn about the transition from training to learning, and how learning theories become concrete in the practical issues and decisions you will make about learning and talent development. The course is designed to encourage critical and personal reflection on these practices with the aim both of enhancing your own learning experiences and of providing effective learning interventions for others.

This OpenLearn course is an adapted extract from the Open University course B867 Workplace learning with coaching and mentoring [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
