Action learning

Action learning is a process in which the learner studies their own actions and experiences to improve their performance.

Instead of of formal teaching, learners learn by doing and then reflecting on their doing in small groups called action learning sets. It was originally developed for individual learners but today is also widely used for organisations who wish to improve their performance.
