Action learning is an adult learning theory based on the ideas of Professor Reginald Revans back in the 1940’s in the United Kingdom. It is a learning-by-doing approach which encourages people to work together to solve a problem or improve performance. Importantly, the group spends time reflecting on what they are collectively learning during the process. The method stands in contrast with traditional teaching methods that focus on the presentation of knowledge and skills.
Each Leadership Academy fellow is asked to create an Action Learning Process (ALP) of interest to them, and of benefit to their organization. As a leader, it is vitally important to learn how to facilitate the group process, and inspire/motivate others to achieve goals and improve quality within the organization.
