Wellesley Institute is excited to announce a new, introductory online course: Research and Front-Line Work with Newcomers to Canada.
If you’re a front-line worker or manager in the GTA, this course will build your knowledge and skills, allowing you to design, carry out, and share research with policymakers and other practitioners. This is an introductory course meant for those with little experience in social research.
You will also learn about how to apply research findings to your own practice. This can improve settlement services and healthcare for immigrants, refugees, and people with precarious or no status in Canada.
The facilitated course is offered at no cost and will take place over six weeks, from September 12, 2022, to October 24, 2022. Each module takes 60 to 90 minutes, and a new one will become available for review and discussion each week.
- Research and front-line work with newcomers to Canada
- Ethics and relationships in research
- Purposes and methods for research
- First steps in the research process
- Next steps in the research process
- Sharing research findings
To receive a certificate of completion, you will be required to complete all modules and participate in the online discussion. As you move through the course, you will have access to all the previous modules and materials.
Your facilitator will be Emily Mooney, MSW, RSW, Project Lead of the Community Knowledge Program and author of the course. She has reviewed, developed, and facilitated education and training for newcomers and service providers for many years, both online and face to face, and she is excited to share this work with you.
Please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org before noon on Friday, September 9, 2022, to register for the course. You will receive an email with further information and instructions.
