BSBLED501 - Develop a workplace learning environment

BSBLED501 - Develop a workplace learning environment

Activity 1

1

What is learning? (25-50 words)

 

 

2

Give an example of a personal learning experience that you have had recently. Describe what it was that you learned, how you learned it and how easy or difficult it was to learn. (100-150 words)

 

 

3

What is a learning organisation? (75-100 words)

 

4

Explain the advantages a business gains by being a learning organisation. (75-100 words)

 

 

 

 

 

 

5

List some of the learning opportunities that you might observe taking place in a learning organisation. Describe how they take place and how formal or informal they are. (75-100 words)

 

Activity 2

 

You are the manager for the debt recovery section of a regional bank. The bank is experiencing unprecedented levels of customers defaulting on their loans as a result of an international credit crisis, soaring house prices and rising petrol prices. A recent strategic decision made by the bank's board means that the bank will reduce the leniency that it has previously shown to long-term customers and will now collect loan securities as soon as they are defaulted. The board also decided to go ahead with implementation of a new IT system that will be deployed across the organisation in order to improve tracking and reporting.

 

As a direct result, you have been given resourcing to hire an additional 10 collection agents—taking your team to 20. You are expecting that the existing team members will resist the change to a new IT system, as they were heavily involved in the design of the current one. You are also expecting that all collection agents will be faced with personal stress as a result of increased workload and conflict with angry or upset customers.

 

Discuss in 220 to 250 words the processes and tools that you will use to determine the learning and development requirements of the:

◦bank as an organisation

◦debt recovery section

◦existing team members

◦new employees

Activity 4

 

You are the clinical manager for a large team of 115 professionals that encompass doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, administration staff, cleaners and catering staff. They all work in shifts and have varying education levels. Some of the staff are newly arrived to Australia and English is their second language, some are single parents and others are contract staff working for multiple organisations.

 

Your hospital has recently been audited by the health standards authority and there is a range of aspects that it has scored particularly well on, but also a small number that have been identified as needing improvement. You have been asked by the organisation's management to put together a project team representing your department in order to promulgate the good practice throughout the rest of the organisation and to identify processes to improve the action areas.

 

You need to:

◦convey the results of the audit to all staff

◦make them aware of areas of good practice

◦advise them of areas needing improvement

◦alert them to the strategy being used to look at future procedures, ie the project team

◦call for nominations to participate in the project team

Discuss in 220 to 250 words how you will ensure all staff obtains the information that is needed by the organisation in a manner that facilitates their understanding, encourages participation and minimises disruption to hospital operations.

Nothing is to be considered as untouchable.

 

Such a project has never been attempted across the whole organisation before, but you know that a few people in various divisions have done mini projects relating to their own operations.

Tim is a young accounting graduate who has been working in your department for nearly six months.

If you were delivering training to a group of employees, what kind of feedback would you require and how would you use that feedback? (75-100 words)

It was all 'talk and chalk'—no chance to ask questions.

I found the topic really interesting but not all of it is important to me in my job.

The instructor was very knowledgeable but it was obvious that they had a set manual to get through.

I would have liked the opportunity to do some of the techniques the trainer suggested.
