I have worked on transformative learning across and between different sectors, disciplines and contexts for about fifteen years. I continue to experiment with bringing together practice and insight from community development, popular education, human ecology, action research, transformative learning, organisational learning ... in service of creating the conditions for the emergence of more resilient, sustainable communities of place. Before my current working convening a working group on 'asset based approaches to workforce development' across the public sector in Scotland, I worked developing a Community of Practice with Carnegie UK Trust for five years. In 2011 I published (with over forty contributoes) a book called 'Exploring Community Resilience' (www.bit.ly/comresilience-download).

Welcome to the network and thanks for sharing information about your work. As I'm sure you know, there is a strong and growing co-production network in Scotland. I'd recomend joining the Scottish Network through this site as they are regularly organising face to face and online opportunities to network, share experiences and promote postive activities across the sector.
Its also worth looking up Catriona Ness, who has been doing lots in Scotland about co-production and asset based approaches in health and social care. She should be able to secure you some supportive senior people!
