The knowledge creation process is described by the mutual exchange of tacit and explicit knowledge. During the socialization mode of learning, tacit knowledge is transferred through interactions between individuals, which may also be accomplished without using language. You may learn and gain a sense of competence by observing behavior modeled by others. For example, coaching, mentoring and apprenticeships instruct tacitly through observation, imitation, and practice.
Learning by doing an activity
As human beings we learn from experience. "The most effective way for learning is the real opportunities people get, issues, difficulties and successes that people have.
There is no need to separate learning and doing."The didactic approach - first you learn and then you do it - and didactic training which companies spend their money on makes little difference if it is not combined with real time development, i.e. bringing about learning and change at the same time - not separating the two.
Most people learn far more from working with their own reality, the 'here and now' and how they want to change this, although it can be very challenging. In comparison, the didactic approach is comfortable and, because of the lack of challenge it is relatively boring and tends to be fundamentally disempowering.
