On February 21st, the Office of the Associate Dean Research, International and Innovation hosted a Research Café on Community-Engaged Research.
Professor Lance McCready facilitated a “world café” roundtable of faculty presentations on diverse projects that included discussion of the opportunities and challenges of doing community-engaged research.
Isabelle Kim, Director of the University of Toronto’s Centre for Community Partnerships, profiled some of the Centre’s recent work and highlighted the support services available for faculty members interested in community-engaged research. The room buzzed – not only with the aid of barista beverages! – as participants engaged in critical discussions about what and who encompasses a community, how researchers interact with communities, and how we can assess the impact of community-engaged research.
