Social work is a practical profession, and the competence needed for a social worker is developed through practical and personal training in different working situations where learning takes place. Learning is always the main focus in building new and better competence. A crucial question may then be: What is learning? There are different theories, viewpoints and learning methods on how to learn. In this chapter, some examples of learning methods with a focus on the experiential and reflective approach are presented.
