  • Abstract:

    English: This article explores the critical, collective reflections that promoted the learning process. Action research has been applied to gather data by means of observation, individual interviews and video recordings. Learners and facilitators co-constructed a containing environment while engaging in reflective discussions. Learning processes involved the modelling of interactions, the development of shared values and the creation of safe spaces. The learning community developed from a position where they mainly complained about challenges to a co-operative position in which they explored alternative ways to promote the shared purposes of the learning community, as well as the communities in which they have engaged.
