Pillay, Hitendra K. (2006) Introduction. In Castleton, Geraldine, Gerber, Rod, & Pillay, Hitendra K. (Eds.) Improving Workplace Learning: Emerging International Perspectives. Nova Science Publishers, New York, USA, vii-xiv.
Closely linked to the concepts of growth and globalisation is the increasing recognition being given to the importance of the workplace as a site of learning. The value of the book rests in the fact that this framework does not have its foundations in just one academic discipline, but rather provides a range of perspectives drawn from psychology, social psychology, sociology and critical theory. The purpose is to move away from a unidimensional understanding of workplaces and workplace learning to provide a different standpoint from which to better appreciate the diversity and complexity of learning in the workplace.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
