Due to ever shorter inno­va­ti­on cycles, employees need to acquire new com­pe­ten­ces more quickly. Classical forms such as seminars and further education courses are often too slow for today’s dynamic changes in companies. There is a need for new approa­ches that are company-specific, flexible in terms of time and scope, and close to the real work situation.

This is why the approach of agile learning was developed, in which learning takes place in the work process and on the basis of real tasks, supported by learning com­pa­n­ions (“coaches”). An important component of this is action-oriented learning according to the principle of the so-called “complete action”, which includes planning, pre­pa­ra­ti­on, imple­men­ta­ti­on, result control and eva­lua­ti­on as well as process reflection.

In the Erasmus+ project HoWARP (short for “Handlungsorientierte Weiterbildung am Arbeitsplatz“, i.e. ‛Action-Oriented Continuing Education in the Workplace’), 3s is deve­lo­ping a new, practice-oriented com­bi­na­ti­on of action-oriented and agile learning for con­ti­nuing voca­tio­nal education together with five European partners. In doing so, we are strictly oriented towards direct app­li­ca­bi­li­ty in the company with the invol­ve­ment of trainers and supervisors.
