Trefnydd: Prof John Ashton
This is an academic final year module which utilises a practical and experiential approach. There is a growing awareness that learning and the core outcomes to learning, knowledge and innovation, is a key source of competitive advantage. Organisational Learning & Innovation is concerned with the processes whereby individuals, groups and organisations realise their potentials through creation, sharing, dissemination and retrieval of knowledge (Knowledge Management). The purpose of the module is to deepen thinking, knowledge and understanding among students about OL & Innovation within a knowledge economy both theoretically and in practice. The module provides a comprehensive foundation of OL and Innovation by deconstructing it into Individual, Group (Team/ Collective/ Social) and Organisational levels. The learning process is explored in terms of designing, delivering and evaluating learning and innovation within the workplace. The challenges of managing knowledge through soft and hard workplace systems, processes and people are introduced, and key contemporary themes relating to OL, Innovation and KM are discussed.
Module content will be research led and incorporate high quality historical and current research scholarship on a number of important theories and contemporary themes in organisational learning and knowledge management. The teaching will be experiential, contemporary and practical and incorporate an overview of the historical/ theoretical overview of Individual Learning, Group, Collective and Social Learning, Workplace learning, the Learning Organisation, Organisational Learning and Organisation Development. We will also discuss Knowledge Management, Knowledge Workers and the Knowledge Economy, how e-learning technologies and social media can be utilised and International OL, future directions, challenges and opportunities.
