Self-Directed Learning In The Workplace: Implications For The Legislation Of Trade Union Education In South Korea, Jeong Rok Oh, Cho Hyun Park

Adult Education Research Conference

The purpose of this study is to theorize self-directed learning (SDL) in the workplace from the perspectives of human resource development (HRD), adult education (AdEd), and lifelong learning in order to suggest the implications for the legislation of trade union education (TUE) in South Korea. Since legislation at the national level can promote workers‘ participation in TUE in the context of SDL for industrial democracy through humanization of education, the South Korean government should provide trade unions with appropriate legislative, financial, and administrative support. Keywords: self-directed learning, trade union education, adult education.
