Unlearning: A revised view of contemporary learning theories?
The speed of change in organisations is now so fast that the normal human forgetting processes cannot cope. Writers in the areas of adult learning and human resource development are therefore showing increasing interest in the need for unlearning. This paper examines two contemporary learning theories, as well as traditional principles of learning, to examine how these theories need to be re-interpreted to help understand unlearning.

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.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
