01/02/2015

The UNESCO Chair in Community-Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education invites the international higher education community to take part of an online survey on "Building the Next Generation of Community-Based Researchers".

The purpose of this survey is to seek to gain an overview of teaching and training in Community-Based Research (CBR) in order to increase access to high quality learning opportunities in CBR for the Global South.

This project is an initiative of the UNESCO Chair of Community-Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education and is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). It aims to identify:

1) current regional sources for the training of new community-based researchers;

2) best practices related to CBR training in four thematic areas (local asset development, participatory citizenship, water governance, and Indigenous research methodologies);

3) lessons learned in pilot studies on training in CBR;

4) potential collaboration amongst partners as a CBR training network.

Answering the survey will take only 10 minutes.
