German term or phrase: Lernfallkommunikation
In a questionnaire on the subject "Operations Integrity Management System" (from Esso) the above term appears in the comments on the item:
"Relevant information relating to safety, health and environmental status, plans, progress and results is communicated and discussed with employees."

- GSU-Kommunikation (u.a. durch GF-Befahrungen, Distriktbesprechungen, Sicherheitsbesprechungen, etc.); es wird eine "Lernfallkommunikation" angestrebt.
(GSU = Gesundheit/Sicherheit/Umwelt; GF = Geschäftsführung.)

Would be grateful for any suggestions!

case study method [of learning]
Explanation:
or:
exchange of information on the basis of case studies
case study-based communications [or exchange of information or possibly learning]

Just a few more suggestions.

Sounds like they want to base the exchange of information (the learning) on practical experience, i.e. case studies. I'd be loath to overemphasize the learning bit, rather shift the emphasis toward "exchange of information" or "communication" as was done in the original.

HTH!

communication for case-specific learning


Explanation:
or: communication for case-orientated learning (or event-orientated)

These are just guesses though based on the context information given by you.

I also found the term "just-in-time learning" (Lernen bei Bedarf) in Siemens Dictionary of Personnel and Educational Terms.
