Christopher Cerasoli and colleagues have received the 2018 Editor's Commendation Award for their recent research on informal learning in the workplace published in the Journal of Business and Psychology.
The Journal, a leading outlet for applied psychology research, selects a handful of published articles each year for recognition of their notable impact on the field. Out of over 600 submissions and 46 published articles, Cerasoli et al.'s (2018) article was one of twelve to receive the Commendation.
The article, titled "Antecedents and outcomes of informal learning behaviors (a meta-analysis)," represents the first empirical attempt to integrate theory and "average" the effects of informal learning in the workplace.
Dr. Cerasoli is an adjunct faculty member of the Master of Science in Organizational Psychology (MSOP) program, and a recent recipient of the Sustained Excellence in Teaching award for part-time faculty.
