Enhancing Action Learning with Student Feedback
Hoban, Garry F.
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v1 n2 p203-218 Sep 2004
Action learning is based on three educational principles--"reflection", "community", and "action"--that interrelate and reinforce each other to support ongoing learning about experiences in the workplace. This study explains how an action learning program established for a small group of science teachers in a secondary high school lasted for two years. In this study "feedback" in the form of student interviews about teaching and learning were introduced to the teacher discussions to enhance the process of action learning. The student feedback gave the teachers an alternative perspective on their experiences and were a catalyst for reflection that helped the teachers to sustain their learning over a period of two years. (Contains 3 tables, 1 figure and 1 note.)
