Abstract: Participation in health is a key principle in a rights-based approach to health. In South Africa, the National Health Act and provincial legislation provides for community participation at Primary Health Care level through the establishment of health committees. These committees can be considered ‘invited spaces’, understood as spaces where governments invite citizens to participate. In 2016, the Western Cape Health Facility Boards and Committees Act was promulgated.

This paper analyses the legislative framework for institutionalised community participation and presents results of a dual qualitative case study. The paper argues that legislation provides for limited involvement in decision-making and questions whether a system where the provincial Health Minister appoints health committee members provide for genuine community participation. Further, the paper argues that the legislation was created with minimal engagement and communication with communities and citizens, creating a space which health committee members perceive to be an ambiguous invitation to participation.

Abstract: The extent to which discussion promotes learning outcomes is a relatively unexplored area in teaching. The present paper contributes to the literature by assessing the extent to which student use of a discussion board is predictive of objective learning outcomes. METHODS. The sample consists of 192 students who completed an online course in research methods at a Carnegie Research Extensive University. Learning outcomes are measured in terms of final examination scores. The number of hits or participations (N=2,468) on a web based discussion board is the measure of the quantity of class participation. Controls are incorporated for possible confounders including performance on previous exams and gender. RESULTS. Controlling for the other independent variables, the extent of participation on the discussion board predicted final exam grades. The greater the participation in the board, the higher the grades. This relationship held for both low and high achievers in the course. CONCLUSION. Using data on a web based discussion board as a measure, the present study reports a link between discussion and achievement. This is the first study assessing the potential impact of participation in a discussion board on learning outcomes in a research methods course. Future work is needed to explore technological effects on learning for other courses, institutional contexts, and other web based utilities, such as blogs.

Abstract: I aim to explore the experiences of people moving from an outside observer to a participant in a widespread social movement in Korea calling for proper apologies from the Japanese government regarding their exploitation of sexual slavery during the Japanese colonial period in Korea. It will be a case study utilizing narrative methods focusing on the participants in social movements organized by “the Korean Council for Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan”, a headquarter for this matter. The reluctance that Koreans generally feel towards social movements is in contrast to the widespread participation of this initiative, which makes it an interesting topic to understand how and why many people got involved.
