A critical Discussion on My Learning About Facilitating Workplace Learning2Workplace learning refers to the interconnection of learning in how skills are upgraded tothe absolute knowledge acquired from the workplace. However, it can also be defined as theacquiring of skills or knowledge informally or formally commonly occurring at the place ofwork. It is important since it has recently become widely used in the maintenance anddevelopment of staff effectiveness as many employees take into a belief that the workplace is thebest area for them to learn. In the response to opportunities, it assists workers or employeesinefficiently do their jobs regardless of the training they went through their formal courses. Thispaper discusses my critical learning about facilitating workplace learning in hand with areflection on the observed learning and session from the module.As a research discipline, I have found out that the fields of learning in the workplace arestill taking a rather new formation, as it ties in together many diverse strands including;continuing professional education, human resource development, workplace learning, andorganizational learning[ CITATION Bea06 \l 1033 ].Besides, the most common denominatoralways seems to be the interest of my learning in terms of a life context. Learning from my sideof the view is much like leadership as a theoretical construct as there are many different methodsand perspectives on the ways of learning and conceptualization.From my research module, it's possible to discern two positions often being referred to inthe research on learning in my workplace[ CITATION Wat91 \l 1033 ]. One of them being cognitiveperspectiveversus the socio-cultural or situated perspective, it has become very recurrent in away of illustrating the opposition that is in between the notion which learning has to take placeand the way it's embedded in social, cultural, and historical contexts[ CITATION Bea06 \l 1033 ].These perspectives have taught meto have a more common approach as most of the perspectives
A critical Discussion on My Learning About Facilitating Workplace Learning3don’t appear to be mutually exclusive. From the majority of the arguments, I obtained from themodule its clear that we all need to transcend the dichotomous separation in the favor of multipleperspectives approaches, making it possible to create the line of reasoning while I stillconceptualize my learning as it partly consists of a part of an interplay of processes in betweenthe context and the individual part contained in the internal process of my knowledgeacquisition.Adult learning is considered to be the most basic principle-based type of learning. Fromthe first principle as a facilitator in workplace learning, there’s a need for the adults to know whythey are learning anything just in before they begin[ CITATION Ger151 \l 1033 ].Also, moreprinciples include the orientation used in learning, the availability and presence of externalmotivation, and the readiness to learn. Facilitation takes part in the reliance on the belief thatstudents have a pool of experience and knowledge from the facilitator as I can draw and relate itfrom the requirements during my learning[ CITATION Smi03 \l 1033 ]. It occurred when a particularpoint of studenttakes the direction they intend to go as their sources increase from theirknowledge base. Proper teaching is taking to have considered the involvement of a process offacilitation rather than taking a simple transmission of knowledge.Facilitation has greatly been used and also regarded as the method used in the guidanceof a group, through the use of their knowledge, potential, and skills in the achievement of goals.Issues that take part include; group roles, dealing with conflict, decision making, problem-solving, and the sharing of information[ CITATION Mor10 \l 1033 ]. It is from this that majority ofthe healthcare is all around the issues in the definition of the ‘best way’of assisting the patient,which are the key skills required by a facilitator due to the ability to take an earlier observation,

Most of my research seems to show or indicate that individualstend to take part in the degree of variance to the point of the willingness of engagement and inthat self-direct learning cannot be compared with that of a more didactic approach.Differences also occur concerning the number of learning outcomes, through a better‘hands-on’ approach which works better compared to that learning of listening and reading[ CITATION Mil03 \l 1033 ]. I take into consideration that whenever facilitation ofworkplacelearning takes part in ay approach, it is not a free-for-all since it has to make sure that it meetsthe learning requirements obtained from the course, organization, or any program being offered.Moreover, taking into consideration all concepts that surround the learning environment, anincreased emphasis during the integration of both classroom and workplace learning, takes themost and best factor in both academic and mentoring of staff[ CITATION Bea06 \l 1033 ]. It comesinto my mind that facilitation ishow one helps learners to achieve their self-growth through self-cooperation, evaluation, and growth with others.Descriptors of facilitation also include empowering, guiding, aiding, freeing, andassisting learners during the learning process[ CITATION Smi03 \l 1033 ].It comes out clearly thatit’s the means or process of helping adults learn. The most common primary role of educatingadults as a process of empowering takes the assumption that many adults tend to take the settingin which they have obliged responsibility for redirecting their learning. The outmost best skillsthat are vital in the empowerment of effective facilitation include; understanding, responding,and attending.
