"Scaffolding" of Action Learning within a Part-Time Management Development Module
Joesbury, Mark
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v12 n1 p65-77 2015
This Account of Practice describes the introduction and development of action learning within a level 5 module of "Communications at Work" delivered as part of a Business & Technology Education Council (BTEC) Professional Certificate in Management (CMS) between 2005/2006 and 2009/2010. This will commence with a personal narrative and then explain the background context of the delivery. As action learning was but part of the learning process over a limited duration of a 15-week semester, the "scheme of work" was designed to cover the required learning outcomes while simultaneously providing extensive structure and "scaffolding" in support of action learning. Student evaluation data for the module were collected over this period and will be used for reflection and evaluation of the authenticity and validity of action learning within the constraints of this context (Johnson 2010).
