PGR Action Learning Day - 4th November 2019, 10-4pm!
Would you benefit from structured space and time to develop your ideas and solve current academic/professional challenges?
Would you like to be part of an inspiring, motivational, supportive, and action-focused network, run by a professionally trained facilitator?
This one day workshop, facilitated by Andrea Rippon, will invite postgraduate researchers to look at the opportunities and challenges that Action Learning Sets will bring to the individual and their research. The Action Learning Set participants (and fully trained facilitators) will meet together for a full day to get an overview of what the process of Action Learning is. We will begin by outlining the stages that make up an Action Learning Set and establish the Ground Rules under which we intend to operate. There will be some skills practice, so we can get the most out of our Action Learning Set – this will include Active Listening, Open Questioning, and Challenging. You will understand your role and the role of the Facilitator during the Action Learning Set and in the Group Process (reflecting on the learning/other after the Action Learning Set is over). Most of the day will be devoted to participating in a facilitated Action Learning Set, so that you can experience the opportunities and challenges that they pose. After this, you will be invited to commit to further Action Learning Sets, where your Facilitator will liaise with set members about dates and organise room bookings, etc.
The session will be taking place on Monday 4th November 2019 from 10-4pm. It is a PPD module worth one credit. You can be booked through the PPD catalogue.
