Action Learning and Constructivist Grounded Theory: Powerfully Overlapping Fields of Practice
Rand, Jane
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v10 n3 p230-243 2013
This paper considers the shared characteristics between action learning (AL) and the research methodology constructivist grounded theory (CGT). Mirroring Edmonstone's [2011. "Action Learning and Organisation Development: Overlapping Fields of Practice." "Action Learning: Research and Practice" 8 (2): 93-102] article, which explored the relationship(s) between AL and organisation development, a case is made that AL and CGT are powerfully overlapping fields of practice. An account of practice is included to provide a contextual explanation of the "overlap", and a new methodological praxeology is proposed to the field of practice/practitioner-focused research.
