Abstract: Drawing on the education and training literature, this paper defines organisational active learning and proposes a conceptual model that specifies organisational-level processes of active learning. In this framework, organisations are presumed to learn through a cyclic process of priming, practising, and reframing. The present theoretical framework articulates the collective processes of active learning in organisations, which enhances our understanding of the process of innovation, adoption and implementation.

Keywords: active learning; organisational learning; innovation adoption; innovation implementation; education; training; collective learning.
