Register Now: Skills for Research Impact Fall 2021 Workshop Series
Registration is now open for the fall 2021 Skills for Research Impact Workshop Series. Offered in collaboration by the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute, the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance, and the Research Innovation Office, these workshops are designed for University of Guelph faculty, research staff and graduate students interested in enhancing the impact of their research. Through six sessions facilitated by impact experts, participants will learn how to successfully plan, execute and evaluate knowledge mobilization (or knowledge translation and transfer) activities. Sessions will cover topics key to effective research communications and engagement of non-academic audiences, including policy, industry and community stakeholders.
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.
All workshops will take place virutally - please feel free to join for one session or multiple. Participants who complete all sessions will be entered in a draw for a chance to win "What Works Now", a knowledge mobilization book authored by Annette Boaz, Huw Davies, Alec Fraser and Sandra Nutley as well as a letter of recognition at the end of the series.
