From the Back Cover:


Learning and Development enables students and managers of learning and development (L&D) to understand the theory and practice of L&D in organizations.

The book explores the concept of learning from a variety of perspectives through the use of examples of research and practice from all over the world. It takes a broad view of learning as encompassing both explicit and implicit and individual and collective learning processes. The central argument of the book is that the practice of L&D should be based upon a rigorous theoretical and empirical base. To this end, each chapter uses synopses of research studies and case studies from businesses to illustrate the most important theories, concepts and models.

For the benefit of students and teachers each chapter also contains lists of key concepts, knowledge outcomes, ‘perspectives from practice’, ‘perspectives from research’, discussion points (for individual or class use), and concept checklists and is illustrated with diagrams, tables and ‘L&D facts and figures’.
