"Knowledge for Change"
A seminar by Dr Rajesh Tandon,
UNESCO Co-Chair on Community Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education & President, Participatory Research in Asia
Dr Tandon will give a presentation followed by discussion on the theme of ‘knowledge for change’. The UNESCO Chair has just completed a global study on training next generation of community-based participatory researchers. The findings of this study suggest the need for building a global curriculum to be delivered by training hubs in different cultural and language contexts. A global consortium is being evolved to undertake this effort. Key elements of such a global curriculum include ethics, political economy of knowledge, partnerships and power in co-construction of knowledge and competencies in using multiple modes of knowledge production, including facilitation of articulation of local practitioner knowledge. These are the themes that will form the focus on the seminar.
Directions and parking:
St Chad’s College is no. 19 on the Durham map.
If travelling by car, we recommend you park in the Prince Bishops multi-storey car park marked ‘P’ just to the right of the Market Place on the map. From the Market Place, head up Saddler Street towards the Cathedral. Don’t take the right turn up to the cathedral, but continue up Saddler Street into North Bailey. Pass Hatfield College on the left and the Durham Heritage Centre in a former church. Pass the turning into Bow Lane on the left and then St Chad’s is a few doors along at 18 North Bailey on the left. It may be possible to arrange limited pre-booked parking nearby for people with mobility problems. Please get in touch to arrange this in advance.
From the railway station it takes about 15 minutes to walk, or there are buses to the cathedral or taxis outside the North bound platform.
