our work

  • No upcoming events

IFAL is an organisation for those who practice or who are simply interested in knowing more about Action Learning.

Through sharing, learning, discussion, debate across the globe, it is the home of development in all things Action Learning.

We run events to promote discussion around action learning and continually develop new  programmes for our members to learn with and from each other. 

Keep in touch by signing up to our quarterly newsletter or become a member and join our growing global community around all things Action Learning!

Practitioner Workshops

Café IFAL is a virtual discussion forum where Action Learning practitioners can share their experiences of using Action Learning in real situations. Whether you wish to present a piece of work you’ve delivered – the struggles and successes - or simply contribute to the debate, join us at Café IFAL.

The format of this virtual event includes a brief presentation of a particular piece of Action Learning practice, followed by open discussion where we share related experience and create opportunities to learn with and from each other.
