Welcome to IPPR course!
The units 1 and 2 of the course set the context for developing an understanding on research. The units would unfold distinct features of social research and participatory research.
Unit 1 would orient on dominant social research paradigms and steps involved in social research.
Unit 2, among others, orients learners with the debates around participation in international development programmes and anti-racist movements and the ways participatory research was integrated in such action oriented people centred movements.
Please read units 1 and 2 as well as the reading material, reflect and add your own insights. See how it unravels the myths on research!
All the very best
