about this item

Community-based research (CBR) refers to collaborative investigation by academics and non-academic community members that fosters positive change on a local level. Despite recent trends toward engaged scholarship, few publications demonstrate how to effectively integrate CBR into academic course work or take advantage of its potential for achieving community change.Community-Based Research: Teaching for Community Impact fills these gaps by providing: an overview of language and methods used by professionals engaged in CBR; a framework for orienting CBR toward concrete community outcomes; effective ways to integrate CBR into course content, student-driven projects, and initiatives spanning disciplines, curricula, campuses and countries; and lessons learned in working toward positive outcomes for students and in communities.
