PLEASE NOTE: The registration period for the pilot course has closed.

We are excited to announce that LERRN is offering a pilot of our Cross-cultural Fieldwork Training Course this winter term!


This 12-unit training program engages with the theory and practice of cross-cultural partnered fieldwork. Units will be delivered through a series of pre-recorded lectures and supported by readings and other materials, with on-line discussions and assignments supported and moderated by a designated course facilitator. This training program will both equip emerging scholars with new research skills and foster critical reflection and dialogue among participants on these issues.

The pilot program will run from 10 January 2022 until 1 April 2022. Students will be asked to dedicate approximately 6 hours a week to the course. There is no fee for participating in the pilot offering of the course.

PLEASE NOTE: This pilot course does not qualify for a university credit.

How to Apply

Students interested in participating in the training should send the following details to by December 2, 2021:

  4. A statement outlining how taking the course will contribute to their own research (250 words max).

Preference will be given to students who will be undertaking fieldwork in some capacity (in person or virtual) as a component of their degree. Successful applicants will be notified in December.
