A APRENDIZAGEM ORGANIZACIONAL SOB A PERSPECTIVA SÓCIO-COGNITIVA: CONTRIBUIÇÕES DE LEWIN, BANDURA E GIDDENS

Sandra Ferreira Freitas, Christiane Kleinübing Godoi

Abstract


This article seeks to establish the transfer of contributions of socio-cognitive learning theories to the sphere of organizational learning. The central argument is the idea that social cognition explains organizational learning more adequately than the fragmented studies of learning derived from the organizational field. Within the socio-cognitive perspective, organizational learning is understood as the result of a reciprocal exchange between socio-cognitive constructs and organizational culture. The understanding of organizational learning requires consideration of the social aspects of learning, and is based on theories capable of interconnecting individual processes, the functioning of the groups, and social relations. Among the learning theories that consider the social context, we elect the analysis and transfer of the following theories, to the organizational sphere: a) Kurt Lewin’s field theory (and his influence on Dewey); b) Bandura’s cognitive social learning theory (and the influence of the attribution theory); and Giddens’ theory of structuration.
