The SevenSenses Action Research Academy is all about learning. We offer several Participatory Action Research courses for anyone interested in applying Participatory Action Research (PAR) in their field of expertise or company.
Worldwide, SevenSenses conducts Participatory Action Research on all kinds of subjects, in all kinds of settings and in cooperation with all kinds of partners and clients. What this all has in common is the approach of PAR: empowering people to tackle complex challenges. Together.
The SevenSenses Challenge is a 12-week Participatory Action Research education programme for students, post-graduates and professionals who aim to experience Participatory Action Research in the field while at the same time working on their own personal and professional development.
SevenSenses offers Participatory Action Research trainings to a wide variety of audiences, ranging from companies to universities and from NGO’s to governmental bodies, and all in between.
When participants of our PAR-trainings wish to put their skills directly in practice in their field of work, SevenSenses is available to provide guidance throughout the PAR-process. Guidance can take place after finishing the PAR training or already start during the training term.
PAR-projects always consist of semi- or unstructured interviews. Through this ‘loose’ interview structure and improvisation of the interviewer during the interview, respondents get full opportunity to talk about what they feel is important to them.
Nowadays, PAR is performed more and more online. Our trainings grow along with this development: we are able to train PAR-skills and provide inspiration sessions via webinars.
