Experiential action learning

Happy man just found gold

Experiential action-learning is used to help delegates refine new skills and embed them into their everyday working practice. 

Experiential, action learning works best when there are agreed assignments or a project to take back to everyday working practices.  For example the assignment may be; managers are encouraged to recognise, reward and celebrate success or a project such as organising and communicating a managers conference. 

This may also translate to a specific challenge a delegate has. At the start of each session – time is put aside to talk through challenge and to encourage peers to join in with supporting ideas to further forward the learning.  

Working with ‘live-issues’ in this way embeds learning and helps delegates use the new found skills in a safe way.  We also recommend organisations have ‘action-learning’ champions or facilitators for greater success of action learning groups or sets.

  • Experiential action-Learning works on:
  • Real problems that are important yet workable
  • Diverse and creative problem-solving in a team or group
  • Procesess that promotes curiosity, inquiry, fun and reflection (lead by a learning consultant or champion)
  • Talk onverted into action and, ultimately, a solution
  • A commitment to learning.
