Several exciting pre-conference workshops are being held at Community-University Expo (CU Expo). One of these workshops will provide attendees with information about how to build a Research Shop, one way of facing the community and engaging in responsive community-engaged practice.
The Community Engaged Scholarship Institute, in collaboration with the Living Knowledge Network, the Trent Centre for Community-Based Education and the University of Groningen, are holding a workshop on how to build a Research Shop. The workshop will offer participants the chance to learn more about:
- What a research or science shop is and where they are located (e.g. university, community)
- What a research or science shop does (e.g., providing responses to community-generated research projects)
- What forms a research or science shop might take (e.g. led by faculty, staff, students; interdisciplinary or disciplinary, etc.)
- The practical mechanisms for building this kind of community-facing mechanism
