Using Evidence: How Action Learning Can Support Individual and Organisational Learning through Action Research
Dewar, Belinda; Sharp, Cathy
Educational Action Research, v14 n2 p219-237 Jun 2006
This article discusses the use of action learning as a structured and deliberate learning process to support practitioners to implement change in an action research project. It discusses both action learning and action research before describing the context of the study. The article then goes on to discuss how the process of action learning contributed significantly to dimensions of the research process. This included enhancing the quality of the data collected about both the process of change and the issue of end of life care, making learning a deliberate process and enhancing the skills of participants as co-researchers. It concludes by stressing the potential of action learning to generate and transfer knowledge into practice through the development of a community of inquiry within a community of practice.
