When: Tuesday, 5 March 2024, 5-6.30pm GMT | 12-1.30pm EST | 8-9.30pm EAT | 6-7.30pm CET

Sign-up: Due to the active participation necessary for this workshop, we have a separate sign-up for this session. Please let us know ASAP should you have signed up and are no longer able to join. Please sign up here.

Who: Dr René Oosthuizen is a senior lecturer at the Community Engagement Division at Rhodes University, South Africa, and the Rhodes University academic lead for UNESCO Knowledge for Change (K4C), and most importantly an experienced engaged Research academic and brilliant workshop leader. 

...together with Claire McCann, PhD student at the Department of Education, University of Oxford

What: A collaborative workshop on the practical implementation of Engaged Research principles across disciplines and methods with the goal of

  1. familiarising participants with the principles of community-based participatory research,
  2. providing practical guidance on how participants may be able to incorporate engaged elements into their existing research, 
  3. and providing tools for connecting with communities, and navigating barriers (power dynamics, institutional barriers)

The workshop requires your active participation to the extent you are comfortable. It will include group work and we ask that, if you feel comfortable, you bring an object that means something to you (and whose story you feel comfortable sharing with others). 

This series is organised by a group of early career researchers from the Student Network for Open Science, the Rhodes Scholars for Science Communication, Policy, and Engagement with Society, and the Master of Public Policy at the University of Oxford.
