Introduction to Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR)
Thursday March 30
EHE College Commons
Are you interested in maximizing the impact of you practice and research on communities? Community practice and community-based participatory research (CBPR) are methodologies that can be used to improve the lives of community members by involving them in addressing the issues that impact their daily lives. By doing so, practitioners/researchers can connect community members to the problem solving process, utilize their knowledge to improve results and provide immediate benefits. However, using these procedures can be challenging, especially in communities where trust is and understanding is low. In this presentation, scholars from the College of EHE Center on Education and Training for Employment (CETE) will review various methodologies using real-world examples including recent work with the local American Indian/Alaskan Native community and efforts to evaluate web-based employment services. This presentation will provide valuable suggestions for individuals interested in applying principles of community practice and CBPR in their work.
Introduction to Propensity Score Analysis in STATA
Monday April 3
Please join the RMC for this introduction to propensity score analysis (PSA). Propensity scores reflect the probability of assignment group (e.g. treatment, control) based on observed baseline characteristics. These scores can be helpful to researchers in analyzing treatment effects in observational/nonrandomized studies. Nivedita Bhaktha, doctoral student in the College of EHE QREM program, will introduce the basics on PSA using the STATA software program. Space for this event is limited.
