Learning organizational practices that persist, perpetuate and change: A schatzkian view

Chapter


Abstract


  • In our recent study of contemporary learning practices in organizations (Boud et al. 2009

    : Chappell et al. 2009; Price et al. 2009) , we sought to examine ways that learning

    occurs through everyday work practices, how learning is in fl uenced by these prac-

    tices and, in turn, how learning in fl uences these practices. We have been seeking to

    appreciate the learning features of work without the burden of using the conceptual

    apparatus of educators or trainers, which can tend to assume that workplaces are

    merely sites for learning to take place. The purposes of organizations are manifest

    in the work that they do and what they produce; learning is a necessary and intrinsic

    part of that work, but work cannot be subordinated to learning
