We continue our CETR Journal Club in November with Drs. Meghan Blaskowitz from Occupational Therapy and Anne Marie Hansen from African Academic Initiatives and Occupational Therapy. They will discuss the following:

Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is critical to working in equal partnership with global communities, particularly to solve community health problems and develop programs to address community priorities. Presenters will discuss CBPR principles they incorporated into their study... From Dependence to Interdependence: A Holistic Vocational Training Program for People with Disabilities in Tanzania including forming collaborative, equal partnerships, building opportunities for co-learning and grounding the research within the local context . Researchers will also share supports and barriers to conducting successful international research such as identifying culturally-appropriate outcome measures, adapting to geographic and socio-economic challenges, and finding the appropriate journal for publication.

About the CETR Journal Club

The CETR Journal Club intends to be a space where faculty and community partners can come together and learn about community-engaged scholarship. There is a growing body of research in the area of community engagement. In order to engage with this burgeoning body of work, Dr. Anita Zuberi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology proposed that we convene faculty and community partners once a month to discuss a different piece of community-engaged scholarship. Each meeting begins with a brief 10 minute presentation of a paper, followed by group discussion. The presentation and discussion pays particular attention to the components of the work that are about community engagement. Through this process, we hope to both promote community-engaged scholarship and build community among those in and around the university who are involved in this type of work.
