More about the "Action Learning" option...


action-learning-world-social-media-networking

 

Action Learning is probably not what you are used to. In the past you may have gone to Professional Development that was largely passive in nature, where you sat in rows, listened to one speaker who inspired you, however you did not necessarily have an outlet to develop and discuss the concepts further, resulting in minimal positive benefitts for your workplace, of which was not the intent of your employer.

The aim of Action Learning is to equip your community to excel. It is an opportunity to look out beyond yourself and look at the needs of others, and to be an active member in improving outcomes for your community.

Action Learning is a Webinar or "In Person" based Adult Education innovation that enables shared learning to become action, benefiting your workplace / community / world of influence.

Action Learning focuses on life-giving topics that are not only intellectually learned, they also form as a habit throughout a 21 day period where constant reflection and action occurs, through individual, small and large group accountability.

 

How Action learning is conducted:

action-learning

A maximum Group of 20 participants meet online or in person for 4 x 1 hour webinar or in person live classroom sessions.

Teaching on the topic occurs at the beginning of the first class, where opportunity also occurs for knowledge and experience sharing.

Participants clearly focus on developing their own action plan (no need for public speaking), that will be shared with the other participants between the 2nd and 3rd sessions. Paricipants also have access in the Resource Library to additional resources on the topic.

Participants are paired up so they can verbally discuss how they see their action plan will look like. This is not a shared project with the other person, it is only a shared space and for conversation to be had. The participants aim to give posiitive feedback of the other persons ideas, and are free to utilise those ideas for themself, in the spirit of community sharing. We do not see the need for aggressive constructive feedback between participants or selfish non-sharing of knowledge.

Once the action plan has been developed, all participants in the class are also given the opportunity to give and receive positive feedback and the freedom to further develop their own strategies of implementing their ideas into the workplace / community / world of influence.

The 3rd session is an opportunity to share with the class how much each participant has progressed since receiving positive feedback from the whole class.

The action plans are then made available to the whole Learning Community, so they too can benefit and have further discussions with the authors in the Lounge (social media area), about the progress of the Action Learning since the class.
