Reg Revans talking about Action Learning (DVD) available to purchase from IFAL
Dr Joanna Kozubska, Vice President, International Management Centres, introduces one of the earliest films of Professor Reg Revans – talking about Action Learning to Dr Gordon Wills, then Principal of IMC.  Filmed in 1984, Revans explains the origins, details and applications of Action Learning.  This archive footage provides an opportunity to hear Revans himself explaining his thinking and ideas (view a video clip). Over the years the theory and practice of Action Learning has developed – this film provides a clear statement of where it all began (Running time: 18mins 50secs.  PAL and NTSC formats available).
