College launches brand new programme in Organisational Learning

Al-Maktoum College has launched a brand new Professional Diploma in Organisational Learning.

The launch of the Organisational Learning programme as an interdisciplinary qualification will develop the knowledge and skills to enable individuals to make effective contributions to workplaces, discover effective methods of learning, and meet and exceed organisational goals.

This one-year programme, SCQF credit-rated by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), will be taught both online and on-campus at Al-Maktoum College based in Dundee.

Programme lead, Dr Alaa Garad, brings with him extensive experience in management, organisational learning, and Strategic Quality and Organisational Development.
Dr Garad asks, “Have you considered why some companies are very successful and achieve great results? And why some individuals are more successful than others? There could be many reasons but, In my view, the main reason is the ability to learn.”

He goes on to describe organisational learning as “the process of creating, retaining and sharing knowledge throughout an organisation; emphasising that learning is through experience and the transfer of knowledge which improves through time.”
