... making ideas easy
Why Simple Theory?
Simple Theory is the result of an idea some students had when thinking about making theories easier to understand for people involved in social research. As a group, we have a commitment to participatory/emancipatory research and we wanted to make a resource to support people involved in this kind of research.
What is Simple Theory?
Simple Theory is an open source, multi-media project. It is not affiliated to any academic institution, carries no advertising and receives no funding. All content is generated by people donating knowledge and time in order to promote emancipatory and participatory research methods.
Over time there will be entries explaining various research terms at many levels from the most simple to graduate level. Simple Theory will also provide a platform to disseminate findings in various forms from emancipatory/participatory research that may not get published in traditional formats.
