Developing Healthcare Practice through Action Learning: Individual and Group Journeys
Wilson, Valerie; McCormack, Brendan; Ives, Glenice
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v5 n1 p21-38 2008
Action Learning is now a well established strategy for reflective inquiry in healthcare. Whilst a great deal is know about action learning there has been inadequate research on the process of learning that takes place, and the impact that this holds for individuals, groups or organisations. This article reports on the findings of 15-month action learning program based in a special care nursery. A realistic evaluation of the program uncovered individual and group journeys and provide evidence that action learning is an effective strategy in practice development. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
