PLA Notes (Notes on Participatory Learning and Action) is the world's leading series on participation. This special issue draws on a recent international workshop on learning and teaching participation in higher education (LTP), hosted by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), UK. The workshop brought together experiences of teaching and learning participation not only in universities but also in other institutions of higher learning, e.g. research institutes and training centres for professionals. The workshop and the global dialogue around it aim to examine the role of teaching as a force for understanding and strengthening processes of civic engagement and democratic participation in development.
