Listening and Learning Toolkit

This toolkit introduces the user to the L&L methodology, identifies the key considerations for a successful process, and includes guidance on best practice for implementing this research method. The “Listening and Learning” (L&L) method is an innovative youth-led, adult supported and technically-advised approach that is based on conversations to capture individual perspectives and experiences. Grounded in principles of Participatory Action Research (PAR), L&L shifts the act of gathering information from a one-sided interview where only subjects share intimate and private information, to an exchange of experiences where the researchers themselves participate in the sharing of personal views, experiences, and emotions in a non-adversarial manner.
