Learning in Workplaces
Learning in workplaces is messy – it is unpredictable, hard to control and hard to plan for. Tim Wilkinson will look at ways people learn, and what we know about learning on the job to find ways to help others learn in workplaces. Some of this relates to learning from experiences, the notion of intersubjectivity, attending to team dynamics not just team function, and coaching around clinical reasoning.
