Action Learning is a teaching-learning method to solve a problem through which members in a team discuss the problem and a facilitator supports the members in the team. The Action Learning makes learners develop human-relationship skills, which are connected to the value of social capital in the modern society. The purpose of this study is to clarify the relationship between action learning and social capital with 17 participants who joined in a nuclear education course opened in the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute. The result showed that the action learning positively influenced the social capital among members in the team. Consequently, it is easily recognized that action learning is one of positive teaching-learning methods to achieve educational purposes of a organization and should be more developed in the future.
