Learning in the Workplace: A New Degree Online
IETI Volume 42, Number 3, ISSN 1470-3297
This paper reports on attempts to develop a new learning in the workplace degree based upon an online learning community approach. The paper describes the use of individualised learning plans, shared electronic portfolios and collaborative reflection on practice. Online strategies such as "hotseating" and the use of workplace advocates are illustrated. The paper exhibits that it is possible to build an online community for an award-bearing workplace learning degree but that new tools and approaches need to be developed to ensure self-directed learning from experience and through reflection can take place in a community of learners.
