The Work-Applied Learning Formula and Process
The learning process the participants undergo is depicted in the Work-Applied Learning (WAL) formula below.
The participants go through a cyclical creative thinking and learning process where they:
- Critically reflect on a problem in their workplace;
- Question (Q) how to solve the problem and the project (P1) to be undertaken to address the problem;
- Reflect and apply the relevant knowledge (K) (e.g. Action Learning and Reflective Practice, Facilitative Leadership, Work-Based Learning, Continuous Improvement or Project Management) to provide possible solutions to the project; and
- Achieve performance outcomes (P2) which include learning outcomes and project outcomes When the Work-Based Learning formula and process takes place in an organisational setting, there is individual as well as team learning.
