The paper suggests a way to support work-integrated learning for knowledge work which poses a great challenge for current research and practice. We first present a Workplace Learning Context Model which has been derived by analyzing knowledge work and the knowledge sources used by knowledge workers. The model specifies an integrative view on knowledge workers’ work environment by connecting learning, work and knowledge spaces. We then focus on the part of the context which specifies learning goals and their interrelations to task and domain models. Our purpose is to support learning needs analysis which is based on a comparison of tasks performed in the past to those tasks to be tackled in the future. A first implementation in the APOSDLE project is presented including the models generated for five real world applications and the software prototype. We close with an outlook on future work.
