An additional thought about the relationship between learning and change is highlighted by James Atherton, in his article about in-service professional training programs. Atherton (1999) suggests that while learning new things is meant to be additive to what people already know, many learners do not experience learning this way. Instead they feel threatened by how learning will change or supplant their current knowledge and skill set. I think this is particularly true when an organization like the one I work for provides training to its staff to help them change the way they do pieces of their work. I have included a direct link to Atherton's article at the end of this post. I feel this article does a great job of demystifying some of the reasons that people resist learning.
