Join us for the third installment of our six-part Skills for Research Impact workshop series!

How do you share your research with non-academic audiences? 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
