    WCHRI-CCHCSP Lunch & Learn: Developing meaningful research partnerships with Indigenous communities

    • Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
    • Location: ECHA 2-420
    • Research with Indigenous communities requires meaningful, accountable partnerships. Through this presentation, we will discuss the use of a relationship-based approach to research and partnership building, focusing on co-creation and the adaptation of research methods to local circumstances. Examples of community-grounded projects will be shared in addition to lessons learned regarding effectively working in the spaces between academia and community.

      Learning objectives for this workshop will include:

      • How meaningful research partnerships can be fostered between researchers and Indigenous communities.
      • The conditions required for community-based participatory research in partnership with Indigenous communities.

      Facilitated by:

      • Melissa Tremblay, assistant professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, University of Alberta. For more than ten years, Tremblay has worked in the area of community-based participatory research with a particular focus on partnering with Indigenous communities.
