Course Description

In this course, participants will learn how to employ Participatory Action Research (PAR), an approach to data collection that emphasizes (a) the full participation and leadership of members of the research population in each stage of the project; (b) the co-production of knowledge between formal researchers and community members; and (c) collaborative social action that improves the well-being of the research population. In this course, we will engage with different theories about how knowledge is created, learn about the principles of PAR and how to apply them in a range of research projects, and work in small groups to workshop the application of PAR in participants’ own projects. This training is appropriate for those planning to conduct research with vulnerable populations, including academic faculty and researchers, postdocs, graduate students, those with research roles in NGOs or public institutions, and undergraduates working on a thesis or other large research project. This course is offered by the Tisch Community Research Center.
