Discussions focus on how to design action research with local citizens, how to involve different stakeholders in a collaborative research process, how to select appropriate methods for the purpose of the research, and how to get the message out about the research findings. Drawing on many examples of action research around the world, and building on the experience of participants, the course will include collaboration on the design of an action research initiative. A field visit to try out action research skills is included.
