Unique formats of information design for education

What if the dissertation was about the use of unique and innovative formats to educate? This could be for a wide variety of audiences, but with the similar aim of access and understanding through contextual appropriateness.

So you could consider the AIDS posters created collaboratively with a community affected by HIV as much as you considered Liberia’s Blackboard Blogger and the Living Newspaper theatre.

What is the designers role in an area where the audience is responsible for shaping the format of the information? What methods have designers (etc) used to help audiences choose the best method for the telling of their stories?

How does format affect understanding for different audiences? Does one audience better understand a parituclar format over another?
