Adapting Action Learning in the Legal Profession: The Role of the 'Provided' Problem
McDonald, Bernadette
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v18 n1 p67-74 2021
Action learning has evolved with multiple variants and a multiplicity of interpretations which have moved it away from Revans Classical Principles. This account of practice describes the use of an adapted action learning set within the legal profession with a specific focus on a 'provided' problem and collective reflective practice in the form of critical reflective questioning. Reformulating the classic action learning equation L (Learning) = P (Practice Knowledge) + Q (Questioning Insight) to L = P (Shared Experience of Practice) + (C)RQ (Critical Reflective Questioning), I reflect upon the way in which the participants engaged with this new approach and consider the adaptivity of action learning within professional legal practice.
