7 1/2 Weeks of Collaborative Curiosity: The Course Schedule

We’ve been working on the course schedule – trying to make sure that we provide a broad treatment of community-engaged research (CEnR) and balance the content across the 7 1/2 weeks. We’ve incorporated the feedback of several people already, and now we’d like to hear from you.

Does this sound like a course you want to take? What would you like to see kept, shifted, focused on, never talked about? What do you want to learn?

First, you may want to review the course description and learning goals.
