Researchers, students, and practitioners gathered for a Community-Based Research Excellence Tool (CBRET) workshop at the University of Toronto. The day brought together people from a variety of academic disciplines to engage in discussion about excellence in community-based research.

Based on the evaluation results, all workshop participants that filled out a survey felt that the workshop gave them the opportunity to gain from others (83% very satisfied and 17% satisfied). The participants reported that the valuable aspects of the workshop were the conversation, the tool, community connections/networking, and the framework. The workshop participants were highly engaged in the workshop. A participant wrote on the evaluation form, “The presenters were excellent. They knew the material in theoretical and practical ways and were excellent communicators.” A few recommendations mentioned were a larger printout of slides, increase the room temperature, and more time could be spent on the tool, group discussions, or case studies.
