Learning and Teaching, and HRD Stream

Stream Lead: Mark Loon (Bath Spa) and Lisa Clark (Newcastle)

Conceptually, learning and human resource development are in many respects indistinguishable, and are complementary if not synergistic. We argue that learning and teaching HRD provides the foundation for the advancement of field that enables new capabilities to deal with ambiguities and paradoxes, and empowers people to take explore new possibilities. Learning and HRD are also powerful agents of change as it can provoke and pre-empt disruptive institutional change, as well as facilitate adaptation.

This stream invites empirical and evidence-based conceptual that papers reflects the conference’s theme involving, but not limited to, learning and teaching of HRD (e.g. theorising of pedagogy and andragogy), and the role of HRD in learning and teaching (e.g. teaching profession, education environments). Within these two broad areas the following are indicative of research themes (which is not an exhaustive list and is presented as a guide only) that are welcomed from HRD scholars, teaching professionals and those who identify with this community:

  • learning in and through work (e.g. work based learning; apprenticeships)
  • the formal / informal tension regarding learning
  • the assessment and transfer of learning
  • innovate practice in teaching and learning
  • neuroscience, cognitive science and decision research
  • learning technologies and analytics
  • learning and continuous professional development
  • research into practice learning cycles
  • building the capability of the L&D professional
  • the HRD Curriculum
