Summary "Action learning is a method of learning and reflection that takes place with the support of a group or 'set' of colleagues working with real problems. It is an ideal means of promoting more active engagement in life and work. This straightforward and practical guide, now published in a revised second edition, is written by two of the leading practitioners in the field. It describes the key procedures and skills required to implement action learning and will be invaluable for professionals and managers in terms of continuing development, and to those in education who are seeking to introduce action learning into their work. This revised edition includes new material that will make action learning more accessible to newcomers to the topic as well as new assessments of how action learning is impacting in higher education. Other key topics include: how action learning works; being a facilitator; running workshops; and action learning for personal and professional development." -- BOOK JACKET
