In this hands-on workshop, Dr. Adam Seth Levine leads researchers and community partners through an outcome-focused collaboration in order to explore the approaches and techniques essential to successful collaborations across institutions.
Dr. Levine is an Associate Professor in the Department of Government at Cornell University who studies how and when people with diverse forms of knowledge work together to ameliorate social problems. He applies this knowledge as the president and co-founder of research4impact, a nonprofit organization that connects researchers and practitioners with similar interests.
Dr. Levine will begin the workshop by discussing some of the common barriers that arise in academic-practitioner collaborations and will provide a guiding framework for overcoming these barriers. Participants will then employ this framework as they workshop tangible projects introduced by the community organizations in attendance. Projects may include research/literature overview, survey/form design, and program evaluation. The event will conclude with best practices and resources for long-term collaboration.
This event is hosted by the Center for Social and Behavioral Science, in partnership with the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute. You are encouraged to register early so that we can match you with a community project that best aligns with your research interests and experience.
