Together with Prof. Dr. Vera Hagemann (Chair of Business Psychology & Human Resource Management), Dr. Julian Decius has published an article in the high-ranking journal “Learning and Instruction” (IF = 6.2). The results of a computer-based laboratory experiment with 142 two-person teams illustrate the importance of feedback orientation for the perceived usefulness and fairness of feedback, which in turn positively influences acceptance and, to some extent, team awareness. The study also showed the superiority of process-oriented feedback over performance-oriented feedback. The study results are freely available and can be accessed here.

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.
