What Is The Session About?

In recent years, the notion of workplace learning within the local context of Singapore has been positioned by many as an approach to help employers and employees alike, in upskilling and pushing for greater business performance. The harnessing of this phenomena that occurs naturally at the workplace, however, is something that warrants intentional engineering on both the organisational and individual fronts.

This guided workshop is designed to give an appreciation of the potential of workplace learning in practical ways. It will cover the “What”, the “Why”, and touch on practice examples of “How” workplace learning can be used by individuals at the workplace.

Participants will reflect on personal experiences of learning at work and connect it with concepts such as workplace affordances/limitations for learning, including types of workplace learning methods. Frequently used individual-based workplace learning methods such as conducting demonstrations, giving feedback, coaching, active noticing, etcetera, will be explored where participants will have hands-on practices to experience some of these for themselves.
