HO-WARP - Action-oriented continuing education in the workplace
Companies continue to have an increasing need for continuous and dynamic competence development. This requires offerings that are company-specific, flexible in terms of time and scope, and close to the real work situation. Important approaches are:
Action-oriented learning with the principle of "complete action", which includes planning, preparation, execution, result control and evaluation as well as process reflection. Agile approaches in continuing education ("agile learning") for dynamic environments with a processing of real tasks from practice in short learning phases. Up to now, workplace-integrated continuing education programs have required a longer lead time and often internal efforts on the part of the companies. Action-oriented continuing education should therefore be designed in such a way that it retains its advantages in terms of content and didactics while generating direct benefits for the company from the outset.
- Development of a practice-oriented combination of the approaches "action-oriented learning" and "agile learning" for continuing vocational training.
- Workplace-integrated learning in the company with the involvement of trainers / instructors / supervisors
- Orientation towards direct applicability in the company
All in all: creation of a procedural standard to which educational institutions can orient themselves.
The aim is that, in the longer term, different educational institutions will offer different forms of workplace-integrated continuing education that enable participants to develop their skills in line with their needs.
