A brief guide to training in participatory methods in the field

Publication year: 

This article provides a range of examples on how to train in participatory methods in a field setting, which is where the most important learning takes place. Various issues to consider during preparation for the field are described; these include the host community, selecting field teams and trainers' tasks and pitfalls. Once in the field, some key pointers to getting started with the training include the shift to visualisation, emphasising sequences of methods and dealing with senior visitors. Processes of review, feedback and presentation are then discussed.
