Community Room (1139)
Faculty of Education Building

Workshop Description: Knowledge Mobilization plans are increasingly required by funding agencies such as SSHRC, NSERC, and CIHR. This hands-on workshop provides three concrete approaches to building KM plans. Participants will be guided through the process of creating their plan and will be provided with resources to support them in these efforts. This session is suitable for faculty researchers, graduate students, and university staff interested in learning more about how to build and implement a knowledge mobilization plan.

Who should attend?

    SSHRC now requires researchers to submit knowledge mobilization plans. Including an actionable plan can increase the chances of being awarded a SSHRC grant. Bringing a copy of your current SSHRC proposal would be an asset.
    This session can help graduate students learn how to build knowledge mobilization plans into their OGS and SSHRC applications. It is also useful for graduate students who are working on research projects with faculty members, as it provides concrete tools to mobilizing research knowledge arising from these projects.
    University staff often have to implement initiatives across the institution. This session will provide planning tools to support these efforts across departments and diverse stakeholders.

All are welcome.

Please RSVP to Karen Kueneman,  by Monday, Sept 19 if you plan to attend.
