Abstract

This volume brings together strands of current thinking on workplace learning processes, emergent work practices and the use of digital technologies to support learning and work. These three components – learning processes, work practices and digital technologies - are critical aspects of contemporary work. Yet the discourse and conceptualisations in these areas are largely disconnected, partly because the work seldom crosses the epistemic boundaries of the variety of disciplines that concern themselves with the study of human learning, work and technology. Amalgamating ideas from an international group of scholars from relevant research domains – professional learning, technology-enhanced learning, computer-supported collaborative work, human resources development, and computer science/information systems - this volume provides foundations for the development of a more interdisciplinary understanding of technology-enhanced professional learning and the advancement of the practice of learning in the workplace.
