|8:15 AM - 12:00 PM ||FSW Research Forum|
Tenth Annual Faculty of Social Work Research Forum
Wilfrid Laurier University’s Faculty of Social Work (FSW) is hosting its 10th annual social work research forum. The forum is an opportunity for social work researchers to share their findings, explore topics related to evidence and practice and expand perspectives. It also provides masters of social work students the opportunity to learn about research being conducted within the FSW community and the variety of methods that can be used in social work research. The emphasis of this year’s conference is on strategies social work researchers use to communicate their research ideas and projects within the university and community. We are interested in innovative methods used for communicating about research from the initial idea phase through to the findings.
The forum will take place from 8:15 a.m. to noon on Friday, Nov. 17, 2017 at 120 Duke Street West, Kitchener, room 101. Registration and refreshments will take place from 8:15 to 8:45 a.m.
