Dr. Aliki Nicolaides is Associate Professor of Adult Education at the University of Georgia, Athens. Dr. Nicolaides scholarship and teachings focus on leading adult learning and practicing collaborative developmental action inquiry as a method for creating conditions for adults to advance their capacity (complexity of knowing) and competencies (skillful means) to engage paradox, uncertainty and the ambiguity generated by early 21st century demands in work, life, and society. In both teaching and research, Dr. Nicolaides is interested in generating conditions for adults, groups and systems to learn, grow and develop the skillful means for mutual inquiry, timely action and mutually transforming power.
