Re. Rick's request for net sources....
As action learning is closely related to action research, you could try
this document on the web:
which compares action learning and action research.
There are also other ar/al resources accessible via the same site -
for the complete list. There's a bibilography there, a guide to action
research and many others.
There is also an action research mailing list (ARLIST-L) which can be
reached via a subscribe message to email@example.com.
