The aim of this paper is to propose an approach to enhancing self-regulated learning in the workplace. Drawing upon social-cognitive theories of self-regulated learning, we argue that current, individualised conceptualisations of self-regulated learning should be re-examined. These contradict the interactional and collaborative nature of the workplace where goal actuation is socially mediated, structured by and closely integrated within work tasks. We outline a mechanism that integrates individual and collective components to enhance goal actuation processes for self-regulated learning in the workplace. We term this mechanism ‘charting’ and provide scenarios illustrating how it might work in practice.
