Action Learning: Research and Practice
Action Learn Res Pract
ISSN (printed): 1476-7333. ISSN (electronic): 1476-7341.
Action Learning : Research & Practice will publish articles which advance knowledge and assist the development of practice through the processes of action learning. Articles should aim to create empirically grounded theory, which widens understanding of action and learning in professional and organisational settings. Papers should encourage practitioners to gain new insights into their work and help them improve their effectiveness and contribution to their clients and the wider community. Action learning is grounded in the approach pioneered by Reg Revans which holds that there can be no learning without action and no knowing without the effort to practice and implement what is claimed as knowledge. Because action learning promotes the creative integration of thinking & doing, theory & practice, academic & practitioner, contributors are asked to strive to hold these often diverse perspectives together. An important question in assessing papers will be: "Is this likely to help people in the further development of their practice in working with people, organisations and communities?" Articles which cross the conventional boundaries of professions, organisations and communities are particularly welcome.
