About the book

Enhancing Participant Engagement in the Learning Process is an accessible guide for students studying Learning and Development (L&D), and is the supporting text for the CIPD Level 5 Unit 5PEL. It takes the reader through everything they need to know about participant engagement in the learning process: what we mean by 'learning' in L&D, the key stakeholders and their varying expectations and interests, motivation theory and learning engagement, how different contexts affect staff engagement in learning, and the psychology behind the learning process.

Packed full of examples and engaging tasks, Enhancing Participant Engagement in the Learning Process will develop your ability to plan, manage and deliver learning that meets the needs of learners and stakeholders, underpinned by relevant psychological theories and research. Essential reading for anyone studying L&D with the CIPD, on an undergraduate or postgraduate course, or those with a broader business interest in participation in the learning process, this is a practical text that will ground you in the theory and enable you to reap the benefits of a successful L&D programme in your organisation.
