IASNR is excited to continue a series of webinars from the 2021 Virtual Conference. These webinars were highlighted by conference participants and IASNR Professional Development Committee members and will be available for all members on the IASNR website. The second webinar in this series is “Community-Engaged Research: Innovations for Moving from a Science Delivery to a Deliberative Science Approach” and was organized by Mae Davenport (University of Minnesota). Debates over the legitimacy and relevance of science have become increasingly polarized in public discourse, news media, and policy making. The need for community-engaged research (also called community-engaged scholarship and community-based participatory research) that integrates multiple ways of knowing has never been more apparent. In this session, presenters discuss new frameworks for deliberative science and examine the outcomes of community-engaged research strategies.

This recording adds to the growing archive of IASNR professional development resources which are only available to members. You will need to be a current 2021 IASNR member to access these resources.
