This conference paper was written to introduce educational researchers attending the NETREED conference to some of the issues of using PRA as an approach to research. It assumes that readers are familiar with PRA. The paper was intended to complement the keynote speech made by Robert Chambers at the conference. It is structured as four main sections:
- PRA: an approach to education or an approach to researching education?
- Exploring PRA in the UK teaching and educational research context;
- Educational research and PRA in the South;
