Beyond Critical Action Learning?: Action Learning's Place in the World
Edmonstone, John
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v16 n2 p136-148 2019
Action learning has evolved over a period of time when managerialism and performativity, which are aspects of neoliberalism, have become stronger and this explains, in part, the emergence of Critical Action Learning (CAL). Performativity, in particular, has increasingly become internalised by people at work. CAL seems to be limited to power relations within and between organisations and thus tends to ignore the dominant ideology of the day -- neoliberalism. The paper asserts that action learning is antithetical to a neoliberal worldview and there are therefore practical implications for action learning practitioners.
