This text describes, analyses and synthesises a wide range of contemporary issues from research and practice in the field of individual and collective workplace learning and development. * Enables students and managers of learning and development (L&D) to understand the theory and practice of L&D in organizations. * Explores the concept of learning from a variety of perspectives through the use of examples of research and practice from all over the world. * Takes a broad view of learning as encompassing both explicit and implicit and individual and collective learning processes. * Argues that the practice of L&D should be based upon a rigorous theoretical and empirical base. * Each chapter uses synopses of research studies and case studies from businesses to illustrate the most important theories, concepts and models. * Lists of key concepts, knowledge outcomes, 'perspectives from practice', 'perspectives from research', discussion points (for individual or class use), and concept checklists to benefit both students and teachers. * Is illustrated throughout with diagrams, tables and 'L&D facts and figures'.
