Registration for Inform is Now Open!
A vast amount of knowledge is created everyday, but is it used effectively? In most cases, only a small fraction of gained knowledge is mobilized to inform real-life situations and help create evidence-informed change. The lack of effective knowledge transfer contributes to a gap between research, policy and practice.
The Certificate in Knowledge Mobilization can help close that gap. Collaboratively developed by CESI and Open Learning and Educational Development, this cohort-based program consists of three online courses which support participants in acquiring the skills and tools to develop knowledge mobilization strategies that are efficient and appropriate to their contexts. The first course, Inform: Processes of knowledge translation and dissemination, begins on September 12, 2022. Over the course of one semester, participants will gain an overview of the theories and practices involved in the creation, sharing and uptake of evidence, and identify barriers to accessing information. Whether you're a KMb practitioner, service provider, policy maker, or researcher, knowing about knowledge mobilization will benefit you and allow you to make the most of new knowledge!
