4th International Seminar of the ESREA Network ‘Between Local and Global: Adult Learning and Development’

20.05.2010 - 22.05.2010

University of Seville
Sevilla Link

The Seminar will focus on Transforming /Researching Communities. In a traditional view the first step to carry out Local Development processes is to research on the community and people’s desires and needs and then acting over the community, not necessarily using participative methodologies.
But, we can think and act in a different direction. First of all, people’s needs, wishes and desires are not blowing in the wind. They are social constructions that stem from the history of the community as well as from collective learning processes, etc. If needs are social constructions we can (re)define them implementing a participatory method opposite to the model of social diagnosis.
On the other hand, we cannot separate transformation and research into two different moments from each other. Using a simile from quantum physics, we can consider these two faces – transformation and research – as a particle and/or wave. Sometimes it can be a particle, sometimes it can be a wave. Sometimes we are researching communities and, at the same time, we are transforming them. Research helps us to act together with people living in a particular community and practices of transforming communities could be a generator of learning processes that help local people to acquire a better knowledge of the community.
