Abstract

This workshop addresses Theme A: Engaging students in learning, through the lenses of us supporting both others’ learning and also our own learning.

We probably all recognise feelings of “being stuck” at times: as learners… researchers… teachers…coaches… [budding] artists…joggers…musicians…etc

Action Learning is a philosophy of:

…a continuous process of learning and reflection that happens with the support of a group or ‘set’ of people with diverse perspectives… (McGill and Brockbank, 2004: 11) who, typically, meet regularly to explore their ‘experienced problems’ (Coghlan & Pedler, 2006: 129).

It can help people who feel they are “stuck” to become “unstuck”…or at least less “sticky”! In Higher Education, it can be used powerfully both as a stand-alone activity and also in the more traditional, regular, sense.
