Action Learning as Relational Practice
Boydell, Tom; Blantern, Chris
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v4 n1 p95-104 Apr 2007
In this paper we propose that all knowledge is made through social processes and is political (of the people involved). If one invests in a relational or historical ontology (a philosophical choice) there are implications for the way action learning is practiced. We illuminate some of these "relational practices". We purport that action learning cannot be viewed solely as the activities of individuals who get together as "comrades in adversity" if organizational change is to be achieved. (Contains 2 tables and 3 notes.)
