Fall 18 praxis guidelines


Research questions 

While the praxis model begins with naming and analyzing the problem (steps #1 & #2), we’re starting at step #3:  finding system-change ideas leading to root solutions.  

It will be through the voices of change agents that the naming and analysis of the issue(s) will at least initially, be articulated.

This includes:

    1. Change agents:  advocates, activists, organizations, networks
    2. Visioning alternatives:  demands, asks for what a different system would look like
    3. Strategies for change 

Note:  While these are the general guidelines, there’s flexibility depending upon the focus.
