The Trent Community Research Centre is pleased to offer a CBR Bootcamp for Trent students enrolled in Community-Based Research, and for Community Organizations. The Bootcamp is a specialized program designed to enhance the research capabilities of students and community organizations, introducing participants to theory and practices of community-based research.
Through a series of six immersive workshops, this program equips participants with the knowledge, skills, and strategies necessary to conduct impactful research within their respective communities. The program combines interactive discussions, engaging case studies, and expert guest speakers to provide valuable insights and practical tools that can be immediately applied to community-based research initiatives.
Workshop themes include: understanding community needs, project management, research methodologies, ethics, data analysis, and sharing results.
This bootcamp builds on a set of modules which are available to all students interested in community-based research.
Students completing a community-based research project in Fall 2023, and who complete all six 1-hour Bootcamp sessions qualify to receive $1,500. This funding has been provided by CEWIL Canada. (Note: Students currently enrolled in community-based research projects in Fall 2023 will be automatically admitted to the CBR Bootcamp. Any questions can be directed to your assigned Project Coordinator).
Community members who complete the six 1-hour Bootcamp sessions will receive a micro-credential from Trent University recognizing their efforts in Professional Development. Those interested in registering for the CBR Bootcamp can register for the first workshop here or contact Matthew Walmsley, Student Experience Coordinator at email@example.com.
