The central question in this course is: how to organize Learning and Development (L&D) as strategic tools in an Organisation? The course focuses on how issues of Professional Learning, Training and Development (L,T&D) are dealt with in organisations and the challenges they face when (re-)designing, implementing and evaluating L,T&D programs or tools. More specifically, the course addresses how organisations connect L, T&D to their strategic plans in order to make Professional Learning a strategic tool in itself.

* Being able to analyse the contextual factors within and outside an Organisation that influence how an Organisation positions and develops L&D trajectories
* Understanding various tools for supporting L&D and being able to define the criteria for selecting appropriate tools within the context of an Organisation
