Abstract

Action learning involves a small group of six to eight people who meet regularly to share reflections and discuss ideas that they try out in practice. Key to the process of action learning is the sharing of personally relevant issues or problems in relation to the action being attempted. In this study, a small group of secondary teachers from different subject areas met regularly to share teaching strategies to improve the quality of teaching for their year 7 students. A web environment was designed to support the sharing of teaching strategies that also included a discussion space to provide feedback on the strategies attempted. This presentation will discuss outcomes of the professional learning process and describe the strengths and weaknesses of using the web-based environment to support action learning.
