As a follow up to a series of meetings exploring Canadian co-op research priorities and gaps (hosted by CASC and CCRN), we wanted to engage you in mapping the expertise of co-op researchers across the country. We have a growing community of multi-disciplinary researchers tackling research on co-ops and we want to better capture the expertise of our community. This mapping process requires 5-10 minutes of your time to enter your research profile online by answering a few quick questions (research expertise and methodology expertise).
These profiles will serve to:
– better showcase your work
-create a clearer picture so we can collaborate with greater ease on future projects/publications
-more clearly see gaps in research to inform future strategic discussions
Please take a few minutes to complete your profile at https://ccrnrcrc.wordpress.com/researcher-profiles/ and please share this email with colleagues as well as students engaged in research. We are looking to capture not just those studying co-ops, but also those in fields that intersect with co-op studies. If you would prefer to offer this information over the phone, Marion Hewitt Pollock, a research assistant with CASC, can call to you gather this information in a brief interview. If you prefer this option, send your availability to Marion via email@example.com .
Your research profile will be shared on the Canadian Co-operative Research Network website and, as well, the Canadian Association for Studies in Co-operation board will mine these profiles to identify gaps and to seek collaboration opportunities.
