‘What’s Hot with Peer Researchers?

Training Peer Researchers: To the task or for the future? 

Hosted by James Watson

Wednesday, February 24th @ 2pm EST

A research team can only be successful with well-trained peer researchers in any role (e.g. governance, data collection, analysis etc.). But, do we train for the task that one time or for a future? What future is there for peer researchers?

This 12th edition of “What’s Hot” is all about training:

  • Should we educate and build capacity beyond research skills?
  • Is certification a step in the right direction?
  • Do peer researchers feel supported to learn with an uncertain future?
  •  Is using technology the solution to connect and educate?


Let’s talk about this on the next “What’s Hot with Peer Researchers?”
