Practising Social Change
Practising Social Change is the practitioner’s journal of The NTL Institute for Applied Behavioural Science. NTL was founded in 1947 by Kurt Lewin and other pioneering educators as a not-for-profit educational organisation for the purpose of advancing the field of Applied Behavioural Science. Lewin is famously quoted as saying: “There is nothing so practical as a good theory.” His genius was an unparalleled ability to work at the intersection of theory and practice: he applied theory to practice, and from practice he created new theory.
NTL is credited with pioneering experiential learning approaches to adult education and organisational change and, for sixty years, it has served as an incubator for many of the theories and methods used to create social change today. In this journal, the world-wide professional community of NTL members and associates describe how reliable and emerging theories of learning and change come alive in the real world.
