Workshop on Participatory Action Research, Planning and Evaluation

[…notice from Daniel Buckles of SAS2 Dialogue]

October 18-20 (Thursday-Saturday), 2018

Centre des practique creatives / Creative Practices Centre

Université d’Ottawa / University of Ottawa

451 Smyth Rd, Ottawa

The creation of knowledge “with” people and not “on” or “for” people is a critical challenge in today’s democracies. This applies to settings involving vulnerable or marginalized communities, the general public and the workplace where meaningful engagement is needed to identify priorities and develop policies, services, programmes and projects.

The three-day workshop is organized into modules that help you learn practical tools that can be adapted to design research projects that are action-oriented. We will also explore tools for participatory assessment of project impacts, and the use of digital tools. Learning is practiced in the context of participant projects and knowledge, making it possible to do real work while learning new skills.


The workshop is open to students enrolled in university or college (full and part-time), and to university and college faculty.


Students: $350.00 plus HST

Faculty: $420 plus HST

Provides a total of 21 hours of instruction towards the SAS2 Dialogue certification program.


Dr. Daniel Buckles is an Adjunct Research Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, and co-author with Jacques Chevalier of Participatory Action Research: Theory and Methods for Engaged Inquiry, published by Routledge (second edition in progress).
