Seminar: CRITICAL ACTION LEARNING
Kiran Trehan, Professor of Leadership and Enterprise Development at Birmingham University, will explain the concept of ‘criticality’ in Action Learning and explore how this enables facilitators to help their Set participants explore issues of power relationships within the Set and within their organisations.
Enacting Critical Action Learning: What is it and how do you do it?
This workshop will introduce participants to the practice of critical action learning by exploring how power relations are part of action learning processes. Critical Action Learning (CAL) seeks to reveal how power relations are part of action learning. Therefore, the emphasis of CAL is not only on the ‘empowerment’ of the individual learner but also on the ways in which learning is supported, avoided and prevented within Sets and in organizations through relations of power. This session will offer an opportunity to engage with the key ideas that underpin Critical Action Learning and experience the approach in practice. Finally, the session will explore the role of the set advisor/facilitator in working with and reflecting on the emotional dynamics of learning and inter-personal politics within the Set.

The Seminar will be from 2pm – 5pm followed by drinks & nibbles and the IFAL AGM at 6pm.
Free entry, all are welcome.
