CBRET Workshop

     

On November 27th in Hamilton, Ontario, researchers, practitioners, and others involved in community-based research gathered for the Community-Based Research Excellence Tool (CBRET) workshop. The event was hosted by McMaster University Center for Continuing Education and the Hamilton Community Foundation. Thanks to the hosts and the 30 people who participated in the workshop!

On the evaluation survey taken after the workshop, 78% of workshop participants reported that they were very satisfied with the quality of the presentation.  79% of survey respondents were very satisfied with how they had opportunity to gain from others and felt heard by others. A participant reported, “This had my brain going and I really appreciate the opportunity to think, discuss and be challenged. The facilitators were fantastic- great listeners and take criticism really well – they made it a safe, comfortable space for open discussion and learning. Thanks very much for inspiring me to be more thoughtful and to pursue/strive for more meaningful projects and research methods.”

Another workshop participant reflected that they valued learning “about community-based research, the CBRET tool, the thought-provoking discussions, [and] meeting others in the community.”
