International Chaplaincy Research Autumnschool

Reflecterende bol met herfstbladeren

After a successful first edition, the second International Chaplaincy Research Autumnschool will be organized this Fall. The Autumnschool provides participants with an introduction to important examples of existing chaplaincy-related research, the research process and various research methods. It prepares chaplains to develop the skills necessary to conduct simple but important research and quality improvement projects. Furthermore, participants will begin building a network of both early-career and established chaplains for future collaborations. 

The Autumnschool will be held online and will consist of three sessions: an afternoon session on October 26th, a morning session on October 29th, and an evening session on November 4th 2021.
