About the book

Facilitating Collective and Social Learning is the essential text for any students studying Learning & Development (L&D) as part of undergraduate or postgraduate courses, and is the supporting text for the CIPD level 5 Unit 5CSL. It will develop your understanding of collective and social learning within the workplace by identifying and exploring what we mean by the terms 'collective' and 'social', explaining the use of collective over group, collaborative and co-operative learning, and consider the implications of this for L&D and HRD practitioners and their practice. The authors describe the emergent manifestations of collective and social learning within the workplace, and introduce and assess different theoretical models. You will explore the key current social media and e-learning tools, technologies and their applications for L&D, and how social media and e-learning tools can be employed to meet organisational learning objectives.

Ideal for professionals looking to further their understanding of the field, you will learn how collective and social learning can support your organisation in achieving its L&D goals and wider business objectives. Easy to navigate and clearly written, Facilitating Collective and Social Learning will provide you with the solid grounding in the theory so that you can apply and benefit from it in practice.
