The aim of this chapter is to provide readers with a rationale for, and practical guide to beginning or expanding their repertoire of participatory research techniques. The chapter merges insight from cognitive psychology and social psychology with evidence of good practice in participatory action research from agricultural science. It is hoped that readers will be inspired and better equipped to foreground the individuals involved in their research over the “hard science”; this is a trusted path to research impact, the importance of which has never been greater.
