Description & Coverage
Description:

Workplace e-learning as a socially and culturally negotiated and perpetuated phenomenon remains uncommon, as does the availability of taxonomies that further analyze this idea critically, paradigmatically, and perspectivally.

Socio-Cultural Impacts of Workplace E-Learning: Epistemology, Ontology and Pedagogy develops and discusses a socio-cultural sensitivity taxonomy for the socio-culturally based research and study of workplace e-learning. It focuses on the 'what if' and 'why' of workplace e-learning as groundwork for more relevant, meaningful, and applicable workplace adult education and training from workplacee-learning.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Decomposition by instrumental instruction
  • Homogenization through social integration
  • Infallibility of innovative artefacts
  • Justification based on rational training
  • Normative learning for normalized work
  • Operationalization from dehumanizing ideologies
  • Primacy of commodified knowledges
  • Redressing socio-cultural insensitivity
  • Social change and social responsibility
  • Universalized workplace education
