Learning Through Participatory Video Research: Challenges And Possibilities For Individual Growth And Grassroots Based Social Action, Kyung-Hwa Yang Jun 2012

Learning Through Participatory Video Research: Challenges And Possibilities For Individual Growth And Grassroots Based Social Action, Kyung-Hwa Yang

Adult Education Research Conference

This discussion is based on a participatory video research project carried out on the U.S. health care system with low-income adults in Chicago in 2011. I present the way in which the project was conducted and provoked learning among the participants. While the project offered them an opportunity for performative, communicative, and creative learning, a sense of collectivity and social action was not evident. I raise the question of how to bring about more meaningful social action through individual learning.
