Virtual Action Learning: Experiences from a Study of an SME e-Learning Programme
Stewart, Jean-Anne; Alexander, Gillian
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v3 n2 p141-159 Sep 2006
This paper presents the findings from a project investigating management development for SME managers using an action learning programme, combining both face-to-face workshops and a virtual action learning environment. This programme was undertaken as part of the ENSeL (Engaging Networks for Sustainable eLearning) project, which was supported by the European Commission. The project aimed to address three main objectives: reworking results from previous European projects to disseminate to a wider audience, creating a learning network amongst the project partners and to undertake three learning trials with SMEs in UK, France and Italy. This paper principally addresses the findings from the UK trials, which ran between February and April 2005, and provides valuable learning to all those interested in developing future learning programmes aimed at SMEs. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
