Learning as a shared responsibility: Insights from a series of dialogic workshops with practitioners, leaders, and researchers (Abstract). In: Robinson, M., comp.

For some time now, the wildland fire community has been interested in 'organizational learning' as a way to improve safety and overall performance. For instance, in the US, federal agencies have established and continue to support the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center, sponsored several national conferences and are currently considering how incident reviews might be used to further organizational learning. To assist in this effort, we embarked on a Joint Fire Science Program-sponsored research project, to understand what organizational learning - even simply 'learning' - looks like currently, and to explore what facilitates or impedes learning. Results will serve as a benchmark upon which strengths, opportunities and challenges may be assessed and addressed.

Keywords: learning, responsibility, safety
