Skills for Research Impact Series: KTT Strategies and Dissemination

Date and Time


Webinar access information will be emailed to registrants closer to each event date.


Skills for Research Impact is a workshop series for University of Guelph faculty, research staff and graduate students interested in enhancing the impact of their research. Throughout the series, participants will be invited to apply the workshops’ content to their own research contexts and goals, and bring in real examples to work on. Workshops will be highly participatory and will provide practical knowledge, skills and tools that can be used right away.

How do you share your research with non-academic audiences? During this workshop, you will learn about a number of potential mechanisms you can use for knowledge mobilization. Discover how to choose a mechanism that’s appropriate for your audience, and take a deep dive into several popular mechanisms for dissemination, including social media, research summaries, infographics, and media. 

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize various opportunities for dissemination of research to non-academic audiences 
  • Select an appropriate option for dissemination to your audience 
  • List, and apply skills learned related to, popular dissemination mechanisms: 
    • Social media 
    • Policy brief or 2-page summary 
    • Infographic or visual summary 
    • Media outreach 
  • List resources that will help disseminate your research in additional ways

Speaker: Elizabeth Shantz, Knowledge Mobilization Manager, Research Innovation Office
