UEA Student Union
Andrea was part of the Courage Wellbeing Project, which researched and piloted innovative approaches to support the mental health and wellbeing of postgraduate research students at the University of East Anglia. Action Learning Sets were chosen as a means to provide ongoing support to PhD students, completing their theses.
An Action Learning Set includes:
- a real problem that is important, critical, and usually complex; brought to the Set by an ‘issue owner’
- a diverse problem-solving team or “action learning set”
- a process that promotes curiosity, inquiry, reflection and self determination
- a requirement that, through talking, can be converted into action and, ultimately, a solution
- a commitment to learning
