Participatory Action Research

We had the privilege of writing the entry about Participatory Action Research for The International Encyclopedia of Media Literacy, published by Wiley-Blackwell


Abstract: This entry provides an introduction to participatory action research as a research methodology that consists in the implementation of actions by a researcher to study the practices, habits, activities, or behaviors of participants and support them in achieving a state of improvement through their reflection and active engagement. It discusses its characteristics, epistemology and ontology, components, advantages, difficulties, and common criticisms. It also describes the relationship and basic insights that are necessary to apply such a participatory methodology to educational contexts as well as to develop media literacy initiatives.
