These paper folios presented the theory, research and practice on workplace learning, encompassing a review of relevant literature - human resource development, learning organizations, organizational learning, learning theory, instructional theory and methodology, authentic assessment, portfolio assessment, and career development. The development of these paper folios was a challenge, considering the complexities of today's global workforce. -- Paper Folio One, Foundations of Workplace Learning, examined the evolution of workplace learning, its nomenclature, and the influence of learning theories. -- Paper Folio Two, Workplace Learning - Influences and Approaches, focussed on several perspectives - the emergence of complex trends, issues, challenges and the influence of instructional theory on workplace learning approaches. -- Paper Folio Three, Authentic Assessment of Learning, presented the theory, complexities and applications of authentic assessment methodologies, as well as the influence of learning styles and self-directed learning. It also highlighted constructivist thinking within a framework of prior learning assessment and recognition (PLAR) and portfolio assessment. In summary, these paper folios captured a snapshot of workplace learning - the past, the present, and the future.
