Lean Research: A pre-summer research workshop
Thursday May 4, 2017
9:00 AM – 2:30 PM
The Lean Research approach acknowledges that research is an intervention and explicitly engages with questions of power. Key pillars relate to navigating dilemmas of methodology and ethics and considering the impact of different decisions on the research participants throughout the research cycle, from designing research projects to practices of data collection and data dissemination.
The 9 AM - noon part of the workshop will include practical tips on how to recruit research participants, how to implement informed consent procedures, how to share data responsibly with decision-makers, and more.
At 12.30, we will feature a keynote from the Girl Effect, a non-profit founded by Nike, based in the UK. This team worked closely with the D-Lab at MIT to create a research tool to help girls become researchers in their local environment. The result is TEGA (Girl Enabled Local Ambassadors) and the case study can be found on the Lean Research Hub. Students will have the opportunity to meet with the Girl Effect team after lunch.
