Walking Together in Two Worlds: Co-Creating a Two-Eyed Seeing Approach to Research Training
Two-day virtual workshop open to post-secondary students, researchers, partners, and community members involved in community-based Indigenous research who are interested in contributing to the development of an Indigenous-led community-based participatory research training program.
Friday, September 24, 2021 (10 AM - 4 PM EDT) Friday, October 1, 2021 (1 PM - 4 PM EDT)
This two-day virtual workshop will explore opportunities and challenges to conducting Indigenous-led community-based participatory research training in post-secondary institutions. The event will include sessions reflecting on:
the experiences of Indigenous & non-Indigenous students
academics experiences of bridging priorities to meet the needs of communities, students, & institutions
engaged discussions together with community members
Day 2 will be a guided co-development of a vision and strategy
to articulate a strategy to co-develop a research training program that
provides students and community learners with the values and skills for sustained relationships
Positively impacts self-identified priorities of Indigenous communities for wellness and success
Contributes to the transformation of post-secondary experiences for students across disciplines by adopting a Two-Eyed Seeing approach
Coming out of this workshop, we anticipate a tangible plan for the co-development of a community-led emergent research training program that is interdisciplinary, interinstitutional, reflects a Two-Eyed Seeing approach, and encourages a mutually respectful alliance between Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners.
