Learning Session: Developing meaningful research partnerships with Indigenous communitiesWednesday, June 30, 2021 — 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Research with Indigenous communities requires meaningful, accountable partnerships. Throughout this presentation, we will discuss the use of a relationship-based approach to research and partnership building, focusing on co-creation and the adaptation of research methods to local circumstances. Examples of community-grounded projects will be shared in addition to lessons learned regarding effectively working in the spaces between academia and community.
Learning objectives for this workshop will include:
- How meaningful research partnerships can be fostered between researchers and Indigenous communities.
- The conditions required for community-based participatory research in partnership with Indigenous communities.
- Melissa Tremblay, assistant professor in the Department of Educational Psychology. For more than ten years, Tremblay has worked in the area of community-based participatory research with a particular focus on partnering with Indigenous communities.
- Richard Oster, research associate in the Department of Agricultural, Food, and Nutritional Science. Oster uses mixed methods and community-based participatory research approaches to work in equitable collaboration with Indigenous communities.
