Methodologists in Sandals: the teaching/learning of research methodologies to ground community action

  1. 1. Center for Scientific and Social Studies: Mérida, Yucatán/Atlanta, Georgia Centro de Estudios Científicos y Sociales Andrea Schuman, Directora
  2. 2. Definition of the Problem Phenomenon of interest: - Water quality Grounding methodology: - Popular Education (PE) Structuring methodology: - Participatory Action Research (PAR) Water transport, Pochote style
  3. 3. Preliminary Planning: key concepts Pollution, contamination Etiology (origens of illness)  Illness/wellness Consequences for human health
  4. 4. Fundamental Problem: water quality schematic of the first cycle of teaching-learning Specialized Concepts Context of the Construction of Knowledge Logic of the Action Teaching Collective Subject Action/Reflection
  5. 5. Definition of the aspects of interest of the phenomenon under study  How intense is the illness provoked by the consumption of contaminated water? (ocurrance of intestinal problems caused by bacteria, amoebas or virus)  The existence (or not) of nodes of infection (extention and/or focalization of the problem);  The probable generators of the contamination (cause(es) of the problem and sites for action)  The general ideas of the residents about the water problem Primary water source
  6. 6. Participant researchers learn to prepare the test tubes – prescriptive teaching Water Transport, Pochote
  7. 7. Fundamental Problem: water quality schematic of the second cycle of teaching-learning Explicación Demostración Practica asistida Practica independiente
  8. 8. Design/Implementation of the Intervention Techniques for data collection – The Community Inventory • Interview Guide • Interviews with women in each household
  9. 9. Community Mapping
  10. 10. Filtration Barrel and Insulated Box for Incubator
  11. 11. Results First Test Round
  12. 12. Resolution of the Problem: treated water with no sign of E. coli
  13. 13. Evaluation- final phase of the cycle of PAR Their concerns were located in the areas of: Participation Process Environmental modifications Results We reconstructed for the first time in explicit terms the steps and the logic of Participatory Action Research, using a backchaining teaching strategy.
