In this new INSIGHT-BLOG podcast we hear from Dr. Mery Perez, a postdoctoral fellow working with the Grenfell Office on Engagement. Dr. Perez is leading a project to better understand Western Newfoundland communities and engagement by Grenfell Campus. We discuss her research methods as well as plans for future engagement using information gathered by this study.
