Project

Continuous Opportunities for Learning at Work CoOL@Work

The research project provides information about employees’ lifelong, or continuous, learning in different work tasks and professions. The project creates more knowledge and understanding of employees’ learning experiences and opportunities. The project adopts versatile data collection methods to obtain multifaceted information on learning, including a survey, interviews and a physiological measurement of electrodermal activity (EDA) and activation levels.

The collected data is used to develop learning opportunities at the participating organisations. The purpose of this research project is to support both individuals and work communities in acknowledging and planning competence development in everyday work and in combining work and learning.

The project is carried out by a consortium led by the Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK) and includes the Tampere University (TAU) and the University of Turku (UTU).
