IFAL Conference 2016: ‘Action Learning and Social Change’

December 11, 2015

Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th September 2016, St Albans Centre, London
Fees: IFAL/ALF members £110 (or £100 if paying before 31 July); ILM/AMED members £120;  non-members £160 (includes lunch and refreshments) IFAL membership is £55 per year and you can join IFAL and get the members’ discount for this Conference.

The purpose of IFAL’s 2016 Conference is to explore how Action Learning practice can be used to drive or facilitate social change at all levels and in all contexts. In practical workshop settings we will hear about current practice and look beyond traditional uses of Action Learning to explore new possibilities and contexts. We have put together a summary about the speakers, workshops and short stories for the conference, and you can read more here.

Listen to short clips of three of our speakers on the projects they’ll be talking about at the Conference:

Lynne Hale: Using action learning to support leaders and social entrepreneurs in the community

Stephen Moss: Working with the LankellyChase Foundation

Adrian Nixon: Unexpected outcomes from working with the Chief Executives of several different charities

The second day will be hosted by the ALF (Action Learning for Facilitators) team and will include the opportunity to participate in an Action Learning Set.

What will you get out of it?

  1. Hear real stories of where and how people are changing the world for the better
  2. Go away with a broader understanding of how AL can be used and developed to meet ever more complex social challenges
  3. Understand the triggers, obstacles and complexities involved in using AL for social change
  4. Share experiences and develop actions for taking your practice forward into new areas

Who is the Conference for?

  • Established Action Learning practitioners working in all sectors
  • Those new to Action Learning who want to find out more
  • OD commissioners who may be interested in hearing about how, where and to what end Action Learning is being used
  • Anyone who is involved in complex social change and who would welcome learning with and from others who face similar challenges.
