Although not initially planned, the advisory committee decided to utilize the information and skills they gained throughout this process. Ongoing discussions of the topic encouraged the committee members to put their knowledge into action. They decided to create a presentation on social media focused on terminology, safety, and accessibility that would benefit RCD's members. Currently, the committee is working on a project using collaborative approaches to develop a training document that will be to be included in the computer course curriculum.This journey has allowed for identification and clarification on many personal levels. I now have a clearer understanding of the benefits and challenges of doing collaborative research between people with disabilities, academic researchers, and community members. Some of the challenges with this approach included the time necessary to develop meaningful partnerships and establishing collaborator's roles within funder's criteria. However, the benefits of moving away from people with disabilities being research "subjects" to active research "partners" outweighs any perceived difficulties.
