Virtual Action Learning Course

With dispersed teams and staff increasingly working from home, traditional face-to-face action learning is often not feasible due to logistics and cost. The Virtual Action Learning Course is a powerful way of facilitating sets using web-based collaborative tools. It’s not ‘second best’ but an action learning method that creates the same benefits but in a virtual context.

During the sessions we will work virtually, exploring the virtual action learning method and giving you plenty of practice so you feel confident to facilitate virtual sets.

Is this for me?

This course is aimed at people who are experienced in facilitating face-to-face sets and want to expand their practice into virtual action learning. It is particularly useful to facilitators who want to embed virtual action learning in the context of leadership development, peer-to-peer learning, cross team knowledge sharing and change and transformation.
