  • 2. http://Learning-Layers-eu The Dilemma of Informal Learning at the Workplace • eLearning for Workplace Learning follows traditional training models – Based on direct instruction, courses and transfer of face-to-face interaction to onscreen interaction [Kraiger 2008] – Scales through reliance on standardized materials • However, most learning (esp. in SMEs) is informal – Connected to work practices, multi- episodic, just-in time [Hart 2011, Kooken 2009] – Passing on of skills between experienced workers [Attwell & Baumgartl 2011] – Does not scale well beyond immediate context highly effective individualized contextualized motivating does not scale not persistent few benefit expensive

  • 4. http://Learning-Layers-eu • Understand the scaling of informal learning • Develop a set of interaction technologies – Scale help seeking in networks – Scale production of dynamic boundary objects – Scale interactions with physical artefacts • Integrate through shared practices, shared meaning and common infrastructure • Scale and sustain through regional clusters Project Objectives and Work Packages
