21 Tips for a short PRA workshop with lots of people

Publication year: 
1994

This concise list of practical hints for running a short workshop which does not include fieldwork is intended for numbers of up to 180 people. The 21 tips cover every aspect, general (eg choosing a room, seating arrangements) as well as ideas for sessions on specific PRA techniques (though a basic knowledge of PRA terminology/concepts is assumed). Chambers ends with an amusing list of his own common mistakes, emphasizing the need for trainers to be critically self-aware and "fail forwards".

Interest groups: 
This easy-to-read paper is extremely practical and would be useful to trainers and trainers of trainers who are about to run a workshop.
