Action Learning – an online guide


The quarterly issue of What Works from the ASTD website, contains a major feature all about Action Learning.

'Action Learning: Real Work, Real Learning' is written by Judy O'Neil and Peter Smith. They open by saying:

"Some facts about action learning:

* It has a long history, and interest and use has grown in recent years.
* Participants learn through working and reflecting on real problems in small groups (also referred to as teams or sets)
* Objectives range from development of individuals, to team development, to individual and organizational transformation.
* Problems may belong to an individual or an entire project team.
* A learning coach (also called a set advisor or facilitator) often works with the group to enable learning."

By following the links on the page, you can find answers to some of the most common questions about how Action Learning works, and you can particate in discussion forums about the learning method on the ASTD site.
