Participatory action learning and action research for self-sustaining community development: Engaging Pacific Islanders in Southeast Queensland
This paper describes a university-community initiative aimed at improving educational opportunities within a Samoan community in Southeast Queensland, Australia. The initiative demonstrates how participatory action learning and action research processes were used to build the capacity of the Samoan community to address self-identified community needs. These strategies enabled community members to develop and sustain their own projects, and equipped them to pass this ability on to other community members, creating long-term project continuity.
