Campus Engage Participate Programme - Galway

Participate in a one day capacity building programme delivered by a national panel of experienced practitioners and scholars in community-based research and learning.

In Community-based learning students gain academic credit for the learning that derives from participating in and reflecting on an experience within community and society.

Community-based research describes a set of diverse approaches to research that are community centred and where the effects of research are concerned with improving, understanding further or investigating further the issue of concern.

Walk away with a plan to implement community-based research or community-based learning into your curriculum.

Gain access to mutually negotiated peer support (online and in person) to help you in achieving your goals.
