Situated Learning and Connected Learning: Implications for Work
"Innovar es encontrar nuevos o mejorados usos a los recursos de que ya disponemos"
(Peter Drucker)

Since 2003, the Autonomous University of Barcelona’s Organisational Development Team (http://edo.uab.cat/en ) has focused one of its lines of research on analysing knowledge creation and management (KCM) processes in organisations involved with education and training. To do this, it has received funding from the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Science and Innovation and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. Since 2007, this line of study has been interested in the analysis of KCM processes in communities of practice (CoP), and has increasingly focused the spotlight on analysing informal learning in the workplace.


In addition, Grupo EDO is committed, by vocation and social commitment, to make the knowledge they generate available to society in general, and to other professionals and academics interested in these results. Following this premise, in 2003 they organised the first EDO event with the purpose of generating debate around different types of training strategies in organisations. With the collaboration of the Centre for Legal Studies and Specialised Training, Grupo EDO launched the International EDO Congress (IEDOC) in 2010; the second was held in 2012 and a third in 2014 which saw collaboration from the Catalonia School of Public Administration School, thus establishing IEDOC as one of the activities that has most significant international impact, related to the topics addressed.

Those 3 institutions will organise the 2016 IV International EDO Congress "Situated Learning and Connected Learning: Implications for Working" together. Its purpose will be to discuss the latest advances in the field of informal learning and the knowledge creation and management processes in organisations.
