Building Indigenous-Settler Alliances in Social Work Education and Community Engaged Research Ethics: A set of guidelines for research and practice.

Jun 23, 2016

Bonnie Freeman, Randy Jackson and Chris Sinding (in collaboration with Experiential Education (Sandy Preston!), the Circle of Indigenous Social Work Action, and Amy Gullage from the McMaster Institute for Innovation & Excellence in Teaching & Learning) will facilitate a project designed to build capacity among instructors in the School of Social Work for teaching and learning about Indigenous-Settler relations; the project also aims to enhance instructors' abilities to appropriately integrate Indigenous practices of healing, helping, community building and activism into the social work curriculum.

Saara Greene is leading a team (of social sciences faculty with expertise in Community-Based Research including Sandy Preston, members of the Hamilton community, and representatives from the McMaster Research Ethics Board and the School of Graduate Studies) to develop two workshops on the ethics of researching with communities for faculty members across the university, and a tool to promote and support ethical community-engaged research.
