Pre-Conference Workshop on Building a Research Shop at C2UExpo 2015

Posted:April 27, 2015

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

The challenge of tenure and promotion procedures should not be permitted to unduly limit the growth of the movement for community-university engagement in Canada. A dialogue for action on this issue should be launched and sustained until this obstacle is permanently removed.*
