Wednesday Seminar: Disseminating research with research participants & other stakeholders
Sharing and disseminating research can be a challenge, whether we are communicating with the press, with policy makers, or with our research participants themselves. Haley De Korne, Kamilla Kraft, and Elina Kangas will share their experiences and facilitate a discussion on challenges and strategies regarding sharing research results back to the people who have participated in the research. All are welcome to attend!
The responsability to disseminate research can take many forms, from academic publishing, to talking to the popular press, to working with policy makers. In this seminar we will discuss approaches to disseminating research results among the immediate stakeholders who have informed the research. We will share our varied experiences and attempts to achieve effective outreach among stakeholders, including issues which we find especially challenging and some strategies which we feel are promising. We encourage researchers to attend with their own experiences in mind, and to join in the discussion and brainstorming of possible future strategies. For those engaged in on-going research, this is an opportunity to think together about what future outreach opportunities are possible.
