SELF-REGULATED LEARNING AND KNOWLEDGE SHARING IN THE WORKPLACE

By Anoush Margaryan, Colin Milligan, Allison Littlejohn and Donna Hendrix

Abstract

This study explores how experts in a global multinational company self-regulate their learning. It investigates experts ‟ perceptions of the impact of knowledge sharing on their learning and work. Findings indicate that self-regulated learning (SRL) is a highly social process that is structured by and deeply integrated with work tasks. Experts tend to draw heavily upon their personal networks of trusted colleagues in the process of diagnosing and attaining their learning goals. In contradiction to existing models, SRL in the workplace does not appear to be a clearly delineated, linear process comprised of discrete stages. Further research is needed to understand tacit practices of SRL in the workplace.
