Workshop Overview:

This three-day workshop will offer participants a unique opportunity to learn about and share ideas on action research in aging communities. Action research is a collaborative inquiry conducted with those affected by the problem for deciphering and solving the issues of the community.

The workshop will involve lectures and site visits to actual action research sites, as well as opportunities to present and discuss your research and/or ideas on action research.

This workshop is targeted at junior gerontologists currently working or wishing to work in a field of community aging and action research for an age-friendly society. The workshop will offer an opportunity for participants to network with other junior researchers and communities struggling to establish an age-friendly society.
