Abstract

The problem and the solution. Learning in the workplace is a major focus for both continuing professional education and human resource development. Yet too often providers and researchers in both areas pay little attention to the learning that actually happens within the work context. In this article, learning in the workplace is analyzed through an examination of the history, assumptions, stakeholders, foci, approaches, and issues in continuing professional education and human resource development. This analysis leads to suggestions for an increased focus on learning.
