This course will introduce participants to the principles of co-production and will provide practical examples of how these can be applied in the conduct of academic research. The course is primarily aimed at social science researchers who are interested in, but have no current experience of, co-production in research.

The course covers:

  • Definition and principles of co-production
  • Building and maintaining relationships for co-production
  • Co-production in action
  • Sharing power and decision-making to co-produce research


Online via Zoom.

The workshop will be organised in two sessions:

Session 1: Understanding the principles

  • Purpose and principles
  • Definitions and theory
  • A values-based approach to co-production
  • Building and maintaining relationships

Session 2: Putting things into practice

  • Co-production in action
  • Sharing power and decision making (different factors influencing power dynamics, developing one team, tools and techniques)


By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  •  Understand the key principles and purpose of co-production
  •  Discuss the practical considerations of putting co-production into action
  •  Apply these principles and practices to their own research interests, in order to explore the potential of a co-production approach.
