The Research Shop is turning 10 years old! Founded in 2009 as part of the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI), the Research Shop works to meet the research priorities of local and regional community organizations. Over the past 10 years, the program has trained and employed 166 graduates students to work on various research activities and outputs that meet community needs first.
Are you interested in learning more about knowledge mobilization? The Institute, in collaboration with our colleagues at OpenEd, just made available a short video explaining what we mean when we talk about mobilizing knowledge and creating research impact.
Take a look at the knowledge mobilization video here!
CESI and the Guelph-Wellington Local Immigration Partnership are seeking one or two graduate students with excellent research and writing skills for 5-week part-time (around 10 hours per week) work opportunities. Students will conduct qualitative research on the services provided to international students to help them transition to permanent residents. Tasks might include literature reviews and scans of existing programs and services, stakeholder interviews, data analysis and report writing.
CESI is looking to fill five student positions for the Fall 2018 and Winter 2019 semesters! Students will work within our Research Shop and Knowledge Mobilization programs on roles related to design, communications, and research.
