Are you looking for new ways to approach challenges and barriers in your PhD research? Does your research leave you feeling isolated and lonely? Do you struggle with procrastination, a short attention span, and a lack of motivation when studying? Are you worried about your relationship with your supervisors, the culture in your office or lab, or the general pressures or demands of postgraduate life? Action Learning may be able to help you find solutions to these anxieties.
Action Learning is an inspiring approach to academic and professional development that offers a small group of peers a structured and reflective way to explore the issues they face. Through reflection, we gain a deeper understanding; and this enables us to meet the challenges we face and manage the process of finding solutions more effectively. Through working in Action Learning Sets, we bring together people from within the same organisation to work through issues, share ideas and challenge perceptions in a trusting, supportive environment. Results are tangible and long lasting.
