Action Research on Cooperatives’ practices at Ardaita College

F&S has been involved in the Nuffic’s Niche project supporting Ardaita College in different areas, including curriculum development and gender mainstreaming.

As part of the project, teachers of Ardaita College are conducting three Action Researches on existing trends of cooperatives. The focus area of their researches are gender, accountancy, and marketing practices of cooperatives. A scholar of applied science from Aeres University of the Netherlands, Professor Frank de Jong, in collaboration with F&S staffs in Addis, has been supporting the teachers on their researches since 2017. Our role in this particular action was helping the teacher-researchers with data collection, providing them digital data collection tools and related techniques.

Last week, we were in Ardaita with Professor Frank working with the teachers on data analysis and documentations.
