BDP talk on "New Learning"

At invitation of the Aachen-Cologne Regional Group of Business Psychology of the Professional Association of German Psychologists (BDP), Dr. Julian Decius gave a talk on "New Learning in the Company – What is really 'new' about it?" on November 12, 2021. The virtual keynote covered the development of a conceptual framework model to explain New Learning and its possible applications in practice. The subsequent discussion together with the audience resulted in valuable impulses for further research on New Learning in the Working Group of Business Psychology with a focus on Organizational Psychology.

Learning processes over time

This topic focuses on how (informal) learning behavior in organizations changes over days, weeks, and months. Moreover, we analyze the dynamics of work-related learning and how learning trajectories differ between employees.

Designing work contexts

The goal of this thematic focus is to examine conducive conditions for work-related learning, employability, and organizational development, both by managers (e.g., shaping learning culture) and by employees (e.g., job crafting).

New Work requires New Learning

This topic is dedicated to the question of how employees in dynamic work environments can be empowered to learn "what they really, really want" in a self-directed way. The "Learning Opportunities Perception Potential", which helps employees to grasp learning opportunities, is considered crucial here.
