PLA Notes 37 February 2000 12 Participatory learning and action requires good facilitators - who aren't always around
We believe strongly in the value of new participatory research methods as a way of stimulating high-quality learning of facts and skills, and awareness of new attitudes to improve people’s sexual health. Such methods would include mapping, ranking and scoring, ‘problem trees’, transect walks, timelines, daily and seasonal schedules, pie-charts, flowcharts and Venn diagrams. However, many of these methods require good facilitation, which is not always available.
