Participatory Action Research (PAR) is a process through which people investigate meaningful social topics, participate in research to understand the root causes of problems that directly impact them, and then take action to influence policies through the dissemination of their findings to policymakers and stakeholders. Like other types of youth organizing, PAR promotes youth’s involvement in their communities and the development of leadership skills. It emphasizes the development of young people’s knowledge, skills, and abilities to be experts on issues of importance to them, and catalyze systemic change in collaboration with their peers and supportive adults.

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong | Issues Effecting Transformational Learning | Scoop.it
Think you're a great leader? Make sure you aren't guilty of one of these three reality-distorting traits.

 

Every great leader possesses a degree of what Walter Isaacson (in his biography of Steve Jobs) describes as "an ability to distort reality."

 

What Isaacson meant is that Jobs forced his will on Apple, often pushing people to create things they never thought possible--a powerful asset in any leader.

 

But that reality distortion effect works both ways. It also means that every leader, to a greater or lesser degree, distorts the reality around themselves, leading to tensions, inconsistency, and bad decisions.

 

There are two reasons why leaders who live in a bubble become so dangerous to themselves and those they lead.

The next trend in higher education: Freelance Professors?

The next trend in higher education: Freelance Professors? | Issues Effecting Transformational Learning | Scoop.it

"'Self-employed professor' could soon be an actual job title, thanks to two companies that are helping a small group of college professors market their own online courses, set prices for them and share the tuition revenue... Although online tutors are available to help, the company's course material is automated. With the new 'Professor Direct' courses, however, a pilot group of instructors will lead courses."
