The Michigan Mixed Methods Research and Scholarship Program (M3RSP) at the University of Michigan (U-M) is holding a workshop in March 2017 entitled “Designing Participatory Mixed Methods Research: Community-Engaged Approaches to Address Complex Problems.”
This Spring 2017 Workshop will take place Thursday, March 30 – Saturday, April 1, 2017 in Ann Arbor, MI and will feature keynote speaker Barbara Israel, Dr. P.H.; School of Public Health, University of Michigan; National Leader and Author in Community Based Participatory Research. Through an interactive approach, attendees will apply their learning to design a participatory, mixed methods study.
Participatory approaches to research (community-based participatory research, action research, transformative-emancipatory framework, etc.) are designed to equitably involve community members, stakeholders, and academic researchers in all phases of the research process, including knowledge generation and decision-making. Participatory approaches enable all partners to contribute their expertise and have been shown to have benefits for participants, their communities, and the quality of the research.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ENROLLMENT: Conducting mixed methods project or actively designing/reworking mixed methods project
