Opportunities to Get Involved

Action Research Summer Camp

Opportunities to Get Involved

Participants are expected to:

  • attend all four online meetings and the core in-person week in June. A compulsory reading list will be made available for preparation. The schedule for the virtual meetings will be communicated in the first week of February 2023.
  • read up before each meeting during the preparatory phase (April to June). If you cannot participate, e.g., due to time zone conflicts, recordings will be provided.
  • create plans for their own community- and action-based research during the in-person week. You are encouraged to either implement PAR with ongoing efforts or begin a newly designed project.
  • cooperate with others, e.g. in small groups, and support joint learning during the intensive week. Participants will share their progress in a concluding presentation.
  • take over minor duties and daily tasks to support our self-organizing during the Camp week (e.g. catering crew, cleaning public spaces, collecting firewood etc.).
  • comply with Covid-19 protective measures according to official requirements and the measures that our host in Innsbruck has set up. Information on the hygiene measures then applicable will be sent with the confirmation of participation. Our training requires close contact and interpersonal interaction. We highly recommend members to have the currently highest vaccination status.

Participants are encouraged to:

  • contribute to program preparation and implementation by offering cases from their own work for group analysis.
  • lead exercises related to arts-based learning or offer any practice that supports our learning process (e.g. yoga sessions, body work).
  • become part of our community of practice. After completion, you can join a group of people scattered all over the world working with PAR. We organize virtual sessions according to the activities and needs of our members. No charge except for the effort it takes to participate.
