Taken as part of a recognised post-graduate qualification or as a stand-alone training course, it could help you make the most of new opportunities in this emerging area.
It will also provide those already facing the challenge of applying participatory approaches in their own organisations with new skills and practical guidance.
Limited numbers of places are available on two half-day sessions allowing students to gain an insight into this emerging area and the topics that will be covered within this course.
These are on Monday 14 January 2013 (online via skype, 12-3pm) and Tuesday 15 January 2013 (face-to-face, Edinburgh 1-4pm). Other taster sessions will be organised later in 2013 - contact us for details.
Anyone who is passionate about using participation and engagement to solve problems.
You will learn from guest lecturers drawing on their practice in a range of sectors including food, health, environment and workplace, you will be able to ask the Course Director for practical support and advice on your work-based assignment for up to three hours a week.
Attendance at Edinburgh is only required for the three workshops. At other times participation is from your home or workplace. Study can be fitted around work and family commitments. Full access is available to the University of Edinburgh’s online digital library, including journals and e-books.
The course takes place on the following dates between 9.30am and 4.30pm. Students should attend all teaching sessions.
The next delivery of this course will be from January 2014.
An undergraduate degree and evidence of a basic understanding ethical issues affecting professionals. Participants with strong professional experience but lower qualifications may be considered at the discretion of the Course Director subject to evidence of academic ability.
The course is available to be taken by both non-Edinburgh students as a standalone course with post-graduate credits or as part of a Masters degree course. Please contact the programme team on telephone number 0131 650 3890 or email.
