COMM 900/HBEH690*:  Current Issues in Participatory Research, Dr. Patricia Parker, (Dept. of Communication) and Dr. Geni Eng (Dept. of Health Behavior)

Thursdays, 2:00 – 3:15 p.m., Room TBD

The first goal of this course is to support graduate students interested in participatory approaches to research. The second goal is to orient students who are currently enrolled or considering enrolling in the Graduate Certificate in Participatory Research Program.  This course serves as a nexus for faculty, community experts, and students involved with participatory research from across campus.  A set of readings with an appropriate load for a one-credit course will introduce current approaches and issues.  The writings of UNC-CH faculty and community experts will be used for some sessions and those authors will be invited to class on the day that their work is assigned.  In sum, this course will support and bring students into a series of campus intellectual events related to participatory research on campus.  Hands-on activities will culminate in a speaker series, for example, or reading group meetings and identified funding sources for participatory research.
