Participatory action research to improve knowledge exchange in agricultural extension
The UK Open University and TEAGASC, the Irish Agriculture and Food Development Authority
The UK Open University and TEAGASC, the Irish Agriculture and Food Development Authority are co-funding 2 postgraduate studentships, commencing early in October 2011. The projects will involve participatory action research to improve knowledge exchange in agricultural extension.
The studentships will support one year’s training at M.Sc level in the first instance. Satisfactory progress will lead to three year’s further support for a PhD.
One project will address social and institutional capital, while the other will focus on the applications of technology to mediate participation and social learning.
They will be jointly supervised by Dr Christopher High and Dr Aíne Macken Walsh.
The closing date for applications is Monday 25th July, 2011. Further details of the projects and instructions on how to apply are available from the URI below.
