A major theme of the BCCI is cultivating “Equity-Centred Practices for Connecting Knowledge with Action” using the recently published Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research (CCGHR) Principles for Global Health Research.
Phase 1 included intensive preparation extending over several weeks leading up to the on-site event in Kelowna. Please see below for the resources that were provided before the start of the BCCI, in order to help inform discussions at the workshop.
- Read the CCGHR Principles for Global Health Research.
- Watch the video on the CCGHR Principles for Global Health Research.
- Consider the following questions, and be prepared to share your thoughts:
- How do these principles fit with your own comfort zone? Where do they stretch you the most?
- What disciplinary values do these principles align well with, confront, or challenge?
- How could these principles inform different parts of the research process? How do you think practicing the principles might change across the research spectrum?
- If you think about putting these principles into practice, what points in the research process would doing so be the most challenging? Are there paradoxes that you might encounter?
- Read the following case-studies prepared, in part, by your BCCI “Authors-on-Tap”. Identify an author or topic that interests you the greatest! During the workshop, you will be given time to engage with these “Authors-on-Tap”.
