leave a comment »

Organizational learning theory can help you better understand how your company as an entity operates and develops, and how you can successfully implement company-wide changes or leaning initiatives. Organizational learning, according to the organizational development model, is indicative of a flexible organization–one that senses changes early and adapts to them quickly (By Lea Terry, Freelance Journalist / Copywriter). Firstly, let’s understand Dr. Peter Senge Presentation

In the long run, the only sustainable source of competitive advantage is your organization’s ability to learn
faster than its competition. Founder and Director of the Center for Organizational Learning at MIT’s Sloan School of Management, which boasts such members as Intel, Ford, Herman Miller, and Harley Davidson,
author Peter M. Senge has found a means of creating a “learning organization.” In THE FIFTH DISCIPLINE, he draws the blueprints for an organization where people expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning how to learn together. THE FIFTH DISCIPLINE fuses these features
into a coherent body of theory and practice, making the whole of an organization more effective than the sum
of its parts. Company after company, from Intel to AT&T to Procter & Gamble to Coopers and Lybrand, have adopted the disciplines of the learning organization to rid themselves of the learning “disabilities”

Theories of learning

Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development OCSLD

There are many different theories of how people learn. What follows is a variety of them, and it is useful to consider their application to how your students learn and also how you teach in educational programmes. It is interesting to think about your own particular way of learning and to recognise that everyone does not learn the way you do.

Learning Theory

Burns (1995, p 99) ‘conceives of learning as a relatively permanent change in behaviour with behaviour including both observable activity and internal processes such as thinking, attitudes and emotions.’ It is clear that Burns includes motivation in this definition of learning. Burns considers that learning might not manifest itself in observable behaviour until some time after the educational program has taken place.
