Episode 461 Community Based Research

Budd Hall is a professor of adult education in Victoria BC and co-chair of a UNESCO project on community-based research. Beginning in Tanzania in the 1970s, he helps local citizens discover questions to which they need answers and which are “researchable.” Often people in the community collaborate with academic scholars to produce reports that are useful to the public. This trend has implications for making universities more relevant to their communities.
