The contributing authors of this multidisciplinary text agree
that workplace learning truly is extraordinary when it is marked by
structural congruence and a positive synergy among the intended and
formal preparation of professionals, that tacit learning occurs
within the hidden curriculum, and that the subsequent demands, both
formal and tacit, are embedded in subsequent workplace settings.
Thus, for this text, these authors explore research and practice
literature related to curriculum, instruction and assessment of
professionals' learning in the workplace and the implications for
best practices. But what makes this book truly unique is that the
authors examine that literature in the context of four
professions-education, nursing, medicine and clergy-at the point of
those professions wherein students are learning during the degree
program stages of their education.
"Extraordinary Learning in the Workplace" is broken into four
main sections. Part I explores curriculum, both formal and hidden.
Part II focuses on conceptions and theories of learning and
instruction and is intended to inform the work of educators with
regard to components of professional education that occur in the
practice settings of the workplace. Part III covers assessment,
using medicine as its example to argue that assessment has remained
largely unchanged for years, thus making the multiple choice
questions tests introduced in the 1950s the "de facto" gold
standard for "quality" assessment. And Part IV focuses on the
training of the instructors, visiting the three key themes of
relationships, activities or tasks, and work practices."
