Action Learning in Fire Departments
Rijk Hofman, Project Manager, Netherlands

I am exploring the possibilities of action learning in the discipline and work practices of fire departments in the Netherlands. I'm searching for examples of investigated action learning in similar disciplines or professional groups, especially in the field of public safety. I am looking forward to your reactions.

Action Learning in Fire Department
Bergstrand, Teacher, Sweden
In my understanding an Action Learning Program can be practiced in different contexts. There is no special design for different occupations.
More important is to induce a program by walking the talk concerning Action Learning principles. Learning with and from each other, tackling real issues, projects, dilemmas in reality, in real time, and supporting designing of an organisation that can facilitate learning and development and support change in organizations.

Action Learning in Fire Departments by Using Camera Images
Rijk Hofman, Project Manager, Netherlands
@Bergstrand: Thank you for your reaction. A special problem with action learning in fire departments is the lack of time to discuss solutions at the job, due to time pressure. One solution for this problem is an After Action Review (AAR), a method to review working practices after practicing. In an AAR, we can use camera images of the job to discuss with the team. Maybe there are other methods to learn after the job?
