Technical and Research Skills: Techniques

Participatory Action Research

1/2 Day

The Sustainable Places Institute is offering training in Participatory Action Research as part of its Sustainability Summer School (30 June - 4 July). The training will be research-led with discipline-specific input from academics working in this area.

The workshop will familiarise Research staff with key principles of participatory action research (PAR) methods and share ideas on the creation of place-based learning communities. Following on from an initial broad introduction to PAR, staff will then be supported through a series of scenario based discussion group exercises. A particular focus during these exercises will be on interrogating the opportunities and constraints for applying principles of PAR whilst undertaking masters or doctoral programmes of research.

PLEASE NOTE - Researchers are encouraged to attend the full Summer School which is free for Cardiff researchers. However, the session on Participatory Action Research is also available to book as a stand-alone session.
