Registration for Act: Transforming Knowledge Into Action 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 third course, Act: Transforming Knowledge into Action, begins on May 15, 2023. Over the course of one semester, participants will focus on the final stage in the KMb continuum, where evidence is transformed into decisions and practices at the system, organization, community and individual level. They will learn about KMb tools and techniques that facilitate the implementation of evidence into practice and support target audiences in sustainable change and be introduced to more complex approaches to knowledge production and use, including co-creation, which can enhance the uptake of evidence and favour evidence-informed decisions and practices.
