An approach which supports small groups (often referred to as 'action learning sets') to tackle real-world problems.
It is based on the premise that people learn best when working collaboratively with others to tackle issues that have relevance to real life. The process involves experiential and peer learning, reflective listening and a commitment to take action. Action learning can take place online, offline or using a blended approach. Online action learning otherwise known as virtual action learning uses collaborative technology to facilitate learning when participants are geographically dispersed. Action learning is often facilitated by a coach trained in the method.
