Your invitation: Please join some 18 others for AMED’s free 2019 Annual Collaborative Writing Workshop, hosted by the University of Chichester's Centre for Sustainable Business.
About practice based learning (PBL): As we become more expert in our practice, we lose the ability to put our finger on what exactly it is that we are good at. Our practice becomes intuitive and melds into the background of ourselves and the situation in which we find ourselves (Strati 2007)*. PBL is intricately linked with how we sense the world artfully through, for example, sight, sound, and touch. This is what Strati calls ‘sensible knowledge’.
How we will work together: In this workshop, James and Rob will share their current research interests in and enthusiasms for PBL, and invite your thoughts and suggestions in a reflexive form of reciprocal learning and exchange. We’ll reflect on the relevance of PBL for our own and other people’s practice in personal, management or organisational development, and assess implications and possibilities for PBL’s future development.
