New Book Launch on Learning & Development in Organisations
Dr Claire Gubbins, Associate Professor in HRM, DCU Business School, has co-authored the publication LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT in ORGANISATIONS: STRATEGY, EVIDENCE and PRACTICE.
This book provides a comprehensive and thematic overview of the thinking, research evidence and practice of strategic L&D in organisations. It covers both strategic and operational practice dimensions, to help students of L&D and HRM to acquire a deep understanding of the field and to inform the practice of L&D professionals by identifying the best available evidence on L&D practices and by providing them with guidelines for action. It builds on the core operational building blocks of L&D and goes beyond these to take a strategic perspective, emphasising the contribution of L&D to organisational and financial performance and the need to align formal and informal L&D with business objectives.
For Dr Gubbins and co-authors Prof Thomas Garavan, Amanda Cahir-O’Donnell, Founder, TIO Consulting, and Dr. Carole Hogan, this publication is the product of three years of research and provides a comprehensive and thematic overview of the thinking, research evidence and practice of strategic L&D in organisations.
Speaking about the publication, Dr Claire Gubbins said “This book is unique as it incorporates the current best available scientific evidence on learning and development design. This research evidence is presented in a practical digestible format- providing access to data informed guidance on how to design learning and development initiatives that deliver results. We often rely on our intuition, on our own or others’ prior experience and while this is valuable it is prone to bias. This book facilitates learning and development professionals to integrate the best available scientific evidence with organisational, stakeholder and practitioner data to make better informed decisions. For example, we have significant evidence that web-based instruction can be as effective and more effective than classroom instruction IF certain design conditions are adhered to e.g. practice on training material, more feedback to participants and giving trainees more control such as pacing, content and sequence of material. This is the book for evidence based learning and development professionals and decision-makers.”
