Product Description

About the Author

Patrick Smith has recently retired from higher education after 50 years of teaching and research, culminating in the award of Emeritus Professor. Throughout his career he has designed and implemented distinctive and innovative professional development programmes in which a deep understanding of relevant theoretical and research findings is applied to professional practice in order to develop practical insights and solutions. In recent years his interests have centred on applying these approaches in the context of work-based learning and development. Patrick continues to research and write on aspects of learning, teaching and development and is currently pursuing a consulting career within the private, public and third sectors. Chris Kemp has been active in the live music industry for the last three decades where his work as a promoter and venue manager developed his commitment to supporting work-based learning. As Professor and Pro-Vice Chancellor at Buckinghamshire New University he created the first ever undergraduate degree programmes in Music Management, Crowd Management and Protective Security. Chris is the Professor of Crowd Management and the Commercial Director of the International Centre for Crowd Management and Security Studies. He has established his own consultancy, Mind Over Matter, as a vehicle primarily concerned with promoting work-based learning and development. Teresa Moore is Head of Department of Music and Event Management and Education Director of the International Centre for Crowd Management and Security Studies at Buckinghamshire New University and is a pioneer of work-based learning and sustainability. Roger Dalrymple is Principal Lecturer and Programme Lead for Professional Education and Leadership Programmes at Oxford Brookes University. He has published a range of collaborative work in the field of practice teaching and learning and work-based education, based upon experience of facilitating programmes. Maurice Gledhill runs a flexible distance learning degree for serving airline pilots. He is a lifelong learner with a particular interest in helping colleagues learn from each other in the workplace. He has a passion for facilitating learning by means of supportive environments and is an expert practitioner.

Format: Paperback
This is an immensely important book recognising, as it does, the need to bring academic rigour to the area of training at work and to recognise that as part of an individual's continuing education and development. It also recognises how its value is welcomed by industry and the individual. `Learning in the Round' is the step beyond formal vocational learning into the area of specific skill development, aligned to the process of service or product delivery, the outcome of which is of real benefit to all concerned. The authors are to be commended for grasping the nettle of education in the workplace acknowledging, as they do, that measurement and accreditation are difficult to implement but that that should not be a barrier to its adoption. Industry can benefit greatly from having more effective and productive staff but, more importantly, `Learning in the Round' will release in individuals the desire to learn and give them the confidence to challenge themselves and employers to improve. It is a concept that industry will immediately `get' and will want to adopt to harness its power to improve effectiveness, competitiveness and creativity. I look forward to seeing how it develops and how its impact on individuals and industry can be measured to prove its effectiveness.
