Reflections, Sharings, and Learnings



Oftentimes Interactive Qualifying Projects are approached as doing research for a sponsor on or about people and society. Shared Action Learning (SAL) takes a different stance, introducing projects as an opportunity to work  with people towards a unified solution. Many project methodologies incorporate a series of steps including: connecting, planning, action, observation and report results. SAL includes a similar methodology but focuses on constant reflection, learning and sharing throughout the entire process. Connection, whether between the team members or those impacted by the respective project, is of key importance to SAL particularly in the Cape Town Project Centre (CTPC) projects. In Cape Town, project groups will encounter many challenges including, but not limited to: location, language barriers, social and cultural divides, new relationships, and socio-economic boundaries. SAL encourages learning from one another and forming plans of action as a group so as to ensure community involvement and future sustainability. Below are pages that delve deeper into the way the Joe Slovo Park team plans on incorporating Shared Action Learning through co-researchers, interviews and the ethics behind any CTPC project.
