Webinar invitation: Reciprocal Benefits of Stakeholder Engagement in Research (Session 1)
The DVC: Research & Innovation, Professor Jose Frantz, will host two webinars titled Reciprocal Benefits of Stakeholder Engagement in Research. Session 1 will take place on Thursday, 10 June with the second session following on Friday, 25 June.

Participants in research projects are key stakeholders, and as researchers, we also learn from engaging with them. Many times when reporting on the research, we only report on the findings but not on the more subtle issues of how being part of a research project can impact the participants. Our speakers will share their experience of using different research methodologies and their subjective experience of the response of the participants.

Topic: Reciprocal benefits of stakeholder engagement in Research (Session 1) 
Date: Thursday, 10 June 2021
Time: 12:30 pm
