What is it?

Delivered by the Young and Resilient Research Centre and the Centre for Multicultural Youth, this masterclass equips researchers with an applied understanding of how to work with young people as collaborative researchers. Attendees are taken through the fundamentals of co-research, case studies, information and guidance, and tools and resources, part of a soon to be published Youth Co-research Toolkit supported by the Centre for Resilient and Inclusive Societies. Attendees will also have the opportunity to listen to the experiences of researchers, youth practitioners and young people, ask questions, and take part in hands-on activities.

What will I gain?

  • An increased understanding of the fundamental concepts of youth co-research, and how to put these into action.
  • Inspiration to collaborate with young people in research roles in your work.
  • Knowledge of practical strategies and the youth engagement skills needed to prepare for, implement and manage challenges on the co-research journey.
  • Access to co-research resources and tools.
  • Connections with other researchers from diverse institutions and organisations.

Who should attend?

Any researcher with an interest in working meaningfully with young people to generate research. Either come along with some projects in mind that you would like to engage youth researchers in, or come along to be inspired for your next research project.

A light lunch will be provided at face-to-face events. We have limited places available so please register promptly.
