Morland, Leigh and Thompson, John L. (2011) Action learning: engaging the budding entrepreneur. In: 6th International Conference on Organisational Learning, Knowledge and Capabilities: Making Waves, 11th-15th April 2011, University of Hull Business School. (Unpublished)

Building on the discussion of what Action Learning is and who action learners are, this paper presents an analysis of learning on an undergraduate Enterprise Development Degree. Implicit in much of the literature is the expectation that action learners are practicing managers and so less attention has been given to exploring Action Learning in other learning communities. This paper discusses the interests and experiences of participants on a degree programme for developing entrepreneurs, which requires learning from action and for action. Cycles of Action Research are used to inform, what action learning might be in this context, who can engage and benefit from this approach, and the ongoing development of the programme.
