The ReSDA research network is a 7 year funded project of SSHRC that has been in operation since April 2011.  This final workshop will provide a summary of some of the research that has been done and what this means. Some of the researchers will share their experiences working in northern communities and how the results can be used to support community development.  We are planning to have sessions that will allow for a variety of participants to share their experiences in social science research including graduate students, community members and those who are doing research through the northern Colleges.  The sessions will summarize many of the considerations and discussions that have occurred over the course of this program. We are proposing to have smaller breakout sessions that allow people to select topics of particular interest to them. Here are some of the proposed  sessions for the workshop:

  1. well being and healthy communities
  2. socio-economic and environmental factors
  3. indigenous involvement
  4. communication of research
  5. policy considerations
  6. partnerships in research
  7. student involvement
  8. Northern Colleges and Institutes in research
  9. future research directions

We also want to offer some training workshops based on some of the ReSDA activities and considerations for research in social sciences.

Please contact us if you are interested in participating in this event.  More details will follow.
