It is ideal for a post-doctoral fellowship experience or that first sabbatical leave for new faculty. Also the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants up to 100 Humboldt Research Awards annually to internationally eminent academics from abroad in recognition of their entire academic record to date.

We look forward to seeing you!

This workshop, co-facilitated by Rebecca Heffernan, Research Services, and Denise Baxter, Vice Provost, Aboriginal Initiatives, will explore how to get started in doing research in a good way with Indigenous communities and organizations. It will cover formal frameworks for engaging with communities, co-creating knowledge, and sharing research data and the results of research (e.g. OCAP principles, TCPS2 Chapter 9). The workshop will also explore the more informal but equally important aspects of relationship building that underlie these formal frameworks: dos and don'ts in approaching Indigenous organizations/communities for research partnerships, differences in Indigenous and western/mainstream cultural understandings of research and knowledge creation, and ensuring relational accountability throughout the research process.

Light refreshments will be served.

To attend, please RSVP to Rebecca at orillia.research@lakeheadu.ca
