Reflections on "Creative" Action Learning in Business Education: Some Issues in Its Theory and Practice
Brook, Cheryl; Milner, Christopher
Teaching in Higher Education, v19 n2 p126-137 2014
The purpose of this paper is to consider some issues in the uses of what we have termed "creative" action learning in a business education context, and to review some aspects of its practice. A review of the literature, including its use in higher education, is followed by a case illustration of its use in a UK business school with predominantly international students. Action learning is principally thought of as a human resource development practice and is widely used in a variety of public and private sector organisations. The focus here, however, is on the use of action learning in a business school setting and the application of specific creative thinking tools, in order to explore its potential for developing collaborative peer learning and support.
