Week 4Discussion: Work-Based Learning

• Look at the diagram below of Raelin’s Work-based Learning Model. • Think of three techniques used to stimulate work-based learning. These may range from specific job aides you have used to coaching or even online tools that have been beneficial to your success. • Once you have chosen three techniques, rate the degree of explicit versus tacit learning that is occurring. Find the location left to right on the X-axis. Then decide where it lies along the theory versus practice scale. Looking bottom to top, place your technique along that scale for Y-axis coordinate. You now have an X, Y coordinate for that technique. Post your three techniques with the coordinates you have selected (e.g., Presentations at a meeting (-4, +4). Explain the reasoning behind each of your choices.• Visit your classmates’ postings. Discuss your differences and similarities. Ask questions to clarify thinking. • Please post your assessment early in the week in order to give others time to respond.Discussion Project: Progressive Case Study: MacArthur and Associates

Week 5

Discussion Project: Progressive Case Study: MacArthur and Associates

• MacArthur and Associates was established over 50 years ago. The company has grown and changed in order to stay viable. Organizationally there are over 50 years of records including projects, departments, business plans, and business forms. The company has a history of slow growth and change. Many of the changes have been documented through business plans and amendments. The records are kept in storage offsite in boxes.• The organization is seeking to establish a learning library using the acquired information. Determining a process in the plan as to developing those resources has been a source of consternation. Providing for hard copy to electronic copies of historical data is a point of contention due to use of personnel, resources, and time. Determining the parameters for the learning library and its potential to the overall performance improvement of the organization is up for debate.• Prepare a 200 word summary on a needs assessment and task analysis based on this week's readings. Use of goal setting theory or other applicable concepts should be blended with the summary. Address the value in being a learning organization and its impact on performance improvement. Prepare this summary as if it were to be sent to the client. Responses should include what is the strength of the summary and what could be strengthened. Provide quality feedback and resources if possible.
