Coghlan, David; Rigg, Clare – Action Learning: Research and Practice, 2021

Ellwood, Paul – Action Learning: Research and Practice, 2018
The starting assumption of this paper is that the management scholar-practitioner does not exist as a stable distinct category.

The learning that occurs when practitioners transition to scholarly-practititioners…

Ram, Monder – Action Learning: Research and Practice, 2012
The trend to imbue action learning with an explicit conception of criticality appears to be gathering momentum. The idea of critical action learning (CAL) foregrounds the connection between power, emotion and organizing. How this triumvirate of forces relate to each other fundamentally shapes the scope for learning. Theoretical and empirical…
