This paper examines theory and practice around small-group learning, with a focus on the higher education context and professional or practice learning in the workplace. Implications for social work education are discussed in the spirit of the drive to restore critical reflection and the potential for social change to practice, reversing what has been termed in the current political climate as the transformation of social workers into ‘little more than organisational functionaries..’ (Parton 2004; 31).
