The question continues to arise, “I know that application on the job is the best, most effective way to learn, but how can I create those types of opportunities?” Enter skill practices - one of the most useful ways of accelerating learning transfer via workflow learning. That is, a skill practice enables people to learn in the context of the activity they need to do as part of their job. While traditional "on the job training" makes use of this practice, it has not historically provided sufficient structure to provide best practices.
