Collecting data is a powerful way to learn about our neighborhoods and their residents, and a way to inform the steps we need to take in eliciting community change. Involving the community in the processes associated with collecting data is critical to ensure high data quality. This two-part, virtual workshop series will provide practical strategies for involving the community in all aspects of collecting data: including developing data collection tools, data collection and analysis, dissemination of results, as well as presenting findings back to the community.
Session 1: Community Engagement in Data (Part 1)
Part 1 will start by introducing community engagement (e.g., what is it? why is it important? how to facilitate it?), as well as best practice for collecting data from and for the community, including process for community involvement in data collection tool creation and data collection. This session will be held via Zoom on October 19th, 11:00-12:30pm.
Session 2: Community Engagement in Data (Part 2)
Part 2 will continue the discussion around community involvement in the process of collecting data in communities. This session will be specific to the processes of data analysis and sense-making, as well as community involvement in data dissemination. Last, we will share innovative ways to share/present data to the community. This session will be held via Zoom on October 26th, 11:00-12:30pm.
