One of the many challenges arriving along with the pandemic is how to keep research afloat while we cannot meet in person with co-creators, participants, and user groups. HQP Erica Dove will discuss how the DATE Lab has adjusted its data collection and recruitment practices, and how their experiences could apply to researchers at AGE-WELL. Come prepared to share data collection problems, solutions, techniques, and strategies in a discussion on recruitment with fellow researchers.
By participating in this workshop, you will:
• Learn strategies to pivot data collection and recruitment approaches
• Gain insight, tips, and tricks about establishing and maintaining recruitment partnerships, during and after the pandemic.
• Network with fellow AgeTech researchers
