One area of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) that has been increasing in importance has been work-related learning that is grounded in practice at the workplace. Within that area, two significant strands can be identified: collaborative learning and technology-enhanced learning. This chapter will provide examples of substantive collaborative work-related learning and continuing professional development and examine how some forms of technology-enhanced learning, particularly in relation to the development and use of social software, are further enriching collaborative work-related learning and development. The first example of collaborative work-related learning is drawn from the experience of inter-organizational learning in manufacturing supply-chain networks. The second example is of a guidance network that illustrates the use of social software to support the development of a ‘community of interest’ of careers guidance practitioners, policy-makers and researchers.
