The Interactive CBPR Teacher's Manual


Welcome to the teacher’s manual. The manual was based off of the Community Academic Research Training Alliance (CARTA) course in community based participatory research (CBPR). This course is intended to be a practical guide to conducting effective, efficient, and ethical community based research.


We’ve broken down the topic of CBPR into 6 different units:
  1. Overview of CBPR
  2. Partnerships
  3. Community Based Organizations
  4. Evidence Based Practice
  5. Research Methods
  6. Special Topics in CBPR
Each unit contains 5-9 individual lesson plans. We hope that you will find our guide both easy to use and highly informative.
