Among educational institutions, we also see there is more and more interest in offering Participatory Action Research in education, as a course integrated in the current curriculum. 7Senses offers the opportunity to either develop a full course among ourselves or to guide educational professionals in developing a PAR course. We can integrate the PAR-course in traditional curricula as well as blended learning and flipped classroom constructions. In addition, we either train professionals in educating students in PAR or we give the PAR-course ourselves.
Heleen Mees, assistant professor of local sustainability governance:
“Madelon has co-developed the PAR module for the course Research Strategies students of the Sustainable Development master. This involved developing the lecture, the tutorial, the individual assignment and the rubric to assess the assignment. She has also helped to select relevant literature for the module. The PAR module has been running successfully for 3 years in a row now. It is very popular among our master students.”
