Field of work Organizational Psychology


Research stay at Maastricht University

In March/April 2022, Dr. Julian Decius spent six weeks as a visiting scholar at Maastricht University (School of Business and Economics). The research stay took place at the invitation of Prof. Dr. Simon Beausaert. The main goals of the stay were to plan future research collaborations, to sit in on lectures in order to gain new teaching impulses, and to expand the international research network of the Field of work Organizational Psychology at the University of Bremen. Julian Decius thanks the members of the ERD of Maastricht University for the inspiring time and the EARLI for the financial support of the visit.

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.
