Consistency and Change in Participatory Action Research: Reflections on a Focus Group Study about How Farmers Learn
Piercy, Fred P.; Franz, Nancy; Donaldson, Joseph L.; Richard, Robert F.
Qualitative Report, v16 n3 p820-829 May 2011
The purpose of this paper is to reflect on our efforts to balance consistency in our multi-year participatory action research study with the need to adapt our research protocol to what we are learning along the way. While both are important, we share several examples of how our flexibility and openness to adapt our protocol to our research findings has lead to methodological refinements and serendipitous learnings. We discuss implications for both agricultural education and research.
