Participate in Oxford Research on BIPOC First-Generation Student Experiences!

Hello BSN students,
Nawreen Hena is a master’s student at the University of Oxford, currently pursuing studies in Higher Education. As a Canadian and a proud alumna of the University of Alberta, their research reflects their commitments to equitable education practice in Canada. 
Their master’s dissertation focuses on understanding the experiences of BIPOC first-generation students in Canadian U15 institutions, to explore the relationship between institutional practices and their development within the university.
They are seeking participants who meet the following criteria: individuals who identify as a visible minority or Indigenous, are first-generation students without parents or guardians with a university education, and are enrolled in full-time undergraduate study.
They are inviting eligible students to participate in approximately hour-long semi-structured interviews, where they may share reflections on their academic journey and their relationship with the university.

Join us for KT Connects on June 23

KT Connects is a series of monthly beginner-level knowledge translation (KT) webinars hosted by Michael Smith Health Research BC and Arthritis Research Canada.

In recent years, co-creation (or co-production) with people with lived experience and care partners has become a prominent aspect of the research landscape and a growing expectation of research funders. There is a lot of variation in the degree to which research teams collaborate with people with lived experience and care partners.

In this session, Dr. Jennifer Baumbusch will share experiences from a co-creation project conducted in long-term care homes. As part of a knowledge-to-action project, family caregivers were integral team members who helped to develop and deliver a workshop series for family members of residents. Jennifer will talk about the successes and lessons learnt in this experience. She will also share strategies for successful co-creation based on this project.
