The workshop Participatory Action Research and Evaluation: A hands-on learning event will take place in Rome, Italy, on 4 - 5 November 2014.
Learn and apply new approaches to participatory action research and evaluation.
Originating with the pioneering work of Kurt Lewin and the Tavistock Institute, participatory action research (PAR) is a well-documented tradition of collective reasoning and evidence-based learning for social change. Taken together, the various formulations of PAR constitute a robust alternative to positivism’s denial of human agency and justice in the global era.
This two-day workshop engages people in hands-on learning and practice using concepts and flexible PAR tools developed and tested by the instructor in settings around the world. The Instructor is Daniel J. Buckles, co-author of “Participatory Action Research: Theory and Methods for Engaged Inquiry” (Routledge, 2013).
The workshop is designed for people in the voluntary, academic, private and government sectors, who are involved in community-based research and evaluation, workplace training and organizational learning and multi-stakeholder facilitation.
