“Managing the unknown through questioning”

Action Learning involves working on real problems, focusing on learning and actually implementing solutions. It is a form of learning by doing.

What is IFAL?

IFAL is a charity committed to creating, supporting and encouraging a network of practitioners and enthusiasts who are introducing, developing and extending the work of action learning to a wide variety of audiences in the UK and worldwide.

Some feedback from the previous conferences

IMG_0023“I had the pleasure of facilitating a session at the IFAL Action Learning conference at Lancaster University Management School. It was great to meet up with like minded advocates of action learning and to share our experiences and ideas. The day was well structured, recognising the legacy of the pioneers including Reg Revans and working with new ideas and techniques.” Dr Richard Hale  (Director of Action Learning Facilitator Accreditation Programme)

IMG_0040“The IFAL conference on Virtual Action Learning was relevant and topical. What I really appreciated was being invited to take part in a virtual AL Set as part of the conference lead in. It was a truly valuable experience. I made new connections and have subsequently experimented with virtual mediums I didn’t even know existed. Thank you.”  Fiona Scrase  (Associate at the Action Learning Centre)
