Through the process of participatory action research (PAR), this case study discusses the development of a new teaching resource in research methods: the Research Methods Roadmap © (RMR) game. The case study shares valuable insight into the opportunities and challenges associated with using PAR and how active participation and feedback impact reflection and reflexivity to drive consumer use and an enhanced product. I collected qualitative and quantitative data through multiple phases of data collection from a broad range of active participants over a period of nine months. Research methods are notoriously difficult to teach and understand, and thus, I sought to provide a solution to address these difficulties for research methods lecturers and students. As a result, I designed the RMR game to aid the teaching of research methodology aimed at undergraduate, intermediate, and advanced postgraduate students. I applied the PAR methodology to four phases of data collection. As I received continuous feedback, interpreted it, and took action based on the feedback, the game developed into further iterations which resulted in five iterations underpinned by PAR methodology. Some of the key lessons I learned were to allow sufficient time for trial and error and to involve a broader range of participants earlier on.
