Workshop Series: Designing Engaged ResearchOnline Event 8:00 am – 9:00 am EST/GMT-5
Connect with OSUN researchers in this workshop series to learn about how to ethically incorporate community engagement into your research using inclusive practices designed to generate new scholarship that helps center community voices. Engaged research transforms traditional research methodology by integrating and centering community knowledge as part of the research process. Engaged research works to enhance and develop sustained community partnerships between researchers and community partners. The core mission of the research aims to investigate, understand, and address an issue of interest or concern to communities and where community partners are actively involved throughout the research process. Engaged research fosters community partnerships with the goal of mobilizing research to influence systems and serve as catalysts for change within communities.
These workshops are by and for OSUN scholars. Registration is required to participate.
