Ketso has been used in research on every continent apart from Antarctica. It has been used to explore topics as diverse as street tree planning, feminist festivals, workplace learning, libraries and change, and tackling rabies. There are 73 peer-reviewed outputs, including PhDs, that mention Ketso as a pedagogical, research or engagement tool (that we are aware of).
A number of academics have researched the use of Ketso, or written about their use of Ketso as a method. Articles that are especially useful for talking about Ketso as a method are highlighted in bold.
This open-access article sets out the theoretical underpinnings of Ketso and a review of 25 years of experience by Ketso’s founder, Joanne Tippett and Lead Facilitator & Trainer, Fraser How:
