      Partners for Urban Knowledge, Action & Research

      Launch of

      “Research as Pedagogy, Advocacy and Transformation” Course,

       Starting date-28th November, 2014

      The Mumbai Local is said to be the lifeline of the city because it connects different extremities of this ever-expanding metropolis. Bhargavi and her friends travelled by train every day and soon took notice of the “life” on this lifeline. In the packed ladies compartment, they began observing an interesting phenomenon: regular commuters, from different backgrounds and geographies, formed groups inside the compartment. In an attempt to explore this unique social bond, Bhargavi and her fellow classmates signed up for PUKAR’s Youth Fellowship Program, a research program that is anchored in Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR). Theirs is one of the many stories of youth who have asked questions that are relevant to their life and their community and sought hands-on experience towards finding answers.

      In an attempt to extend this opportunity to the students of Dr. B.M.N. College, PUKAR and the Gandhian Studies Centre have partnered to launch “Research as Pedagogy, Advocacy and Transformation”, a 2 credit certificate course. Under the guidance of PUKAR’s resource persons, the students will formulate a powerful research question of their choice. They will then step out in the field and use appropriate research methods, such as Interviews, Focus Group Discussions and Survey, to gather information and analyze the many narratives they collect from their community. These journeys will culminate in a report where the participants tell the tales of their journeys and discoveries.
