I have been struggling to get my head around the concept of a ‘learning organisation’ as the term is a new one to me. I loved Senge’s (2007) definition ‘…organizations where people continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning how to learn together.’ (p.3)
To me the above definition is really clear and it certainly makes me want to be a part of such an organisation. I think sometimes I am too busy and forget to pay attention to my own learning as well as the students. I think this definition and concept will also be useful for assignment two as it has helped me understand another part of the broad role of the teacher librarian.
