A brief guide to training in participatory methods in the workshop



The exercises described in this article provide a range of examples of how to train in participatory methods in a workshop setting. Many of them evolved through individuals making adaptations to fit their own needs and contexts. So do adapt those presented here to meet your own particular training requirements. Even better, invent your own and find your own way
of doing things. All training in participatory methods should cover three basic groups of methods: Semi-structured interviewing,
diagramming and visualisations, and ranking and scoring methods.
