Remote Participatory Video

Participatory video captures what surveys, questionnaires and bar charts fail to communicate: the human stories and voices of the people. There is an increasing need to listen to these voices and have them visualised for a deeper understanding and learning of monitoring, evaluation and learning processes. People’s emotions touch on and make a difference in decision-making processes, a report disappears in the drawer.

Why choose this course?

This Remote Participatory Video online course is a 3-week programme specifically designed for key personnel in NGOs, government, UN agencies and private sector organisations.

Participants will experience and learn how to facilitate a remote participatory video process. The online training will be very practical; each week will follow a cycle of learning by doing, feedback and reflection. By the end of the training, participants will have completed a participatory film that is ready to be shared for an online screening event.
