Research into Learning at the Leicester Conference

Dione Hills, Ph.D.

This article describes a research project that was undertaken alongside the 2012 Leicester conference group relations event. The aim was to explore a number of questions about learning derived from the conference, and in particular, how different aspects of the conference contributed to learning. It also explored the challenges inherent in undertaking research into a group relations activity. In relation to the first of these tasks, the results indicated that the learning was highly valued by participants, particularly in terms of increasing their understanding of group dynamics, and in feeling more at ease and able to cope in complex, ambiguous, and emotionally charged situations, with different aspects of the conference contributing differently to this learning. In terms of the second task, the research demonstrated that, when undertaken with care, a great deal of useful qualitative and quantitative data can be derived, without overly influencing the event itself.
