Transcript

  1. Seeing and Doing: Learning in Community Groups Funded by: Hosted by: Supporting Community Action: Lessons from Australia and the UK Angus McCabe: Third Sector Research Centre 25th September 2013
  2. How People Learn in Community Groups • • • • Experiential learning: seeing and doing Peer to peer learning Drawing on other work/life experiences Networked learning: face to face – but on line/social media? • Opportunities for collective reflection and development • Not formalised training – except when required – eg safeguarding (cf Capacity Builders etc etc)
  3. Challenges to Community Learning • Emphasis on individualised/vocational learning: the ‘death of a radical tradition’? (Westoby and Shevellar: 2012) • A false divide between ‘learning’ and ‘training’? • Accreditation of ‘the individual’ versus the collective or ‘complimentary skills’ in group development • Ability of peers to share knowledge and expertise effectively • Lack of opportunity • The ‘value’ or ‘currency’ of collective learning • Complexity – political systems, legislation, management…. • The personal risks of learning for action……..
  4. Personal Challenges • From seeing/learning to ‘doing’; community groups outside the state and community development agendas • ‘There’s a lot to learn from wasting time. There’s a heart that burns. There’s an open mind’ (Neil Young) • ‘Rise up with me against the organisation of misery’ (Pablo Neruda)
