Continuity and learning

This free course, Continuity and learning, has a practical and professional development focus. You will explore interactive dimensions of workplace learning: how people and workplace cultures create formal, informal, planned and unplanned opportunities to learn. You will read about 'biographical learning' research, where adults develop narratives to better understand key points of their learning lives. You will plan and carry out a brief, informal interview with a colleague, and your colleague will interview you, on themes of learning and work. To complete this OpenLearn course you will write a short draft of the key points of the interview and reflect on your own learning biography.
