The Certificate in Knowledge Mobilization is designed to develop participants' knowledge, skills and values with respect to knowledge mobilization (KMb) and build capacity to select and apply KMb tools and techniques to move knowledge into action.
This program has been developed at the University of Guelph, by the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI) in partnership with OpenEd, to serve as a professional development opportunity for researchers, research communicators, or others aiming to enhance their capacity to turn knowledge into action.
The early bird registration fee is available until November 25, 2016.
The Certificate in Knowledge Mobilization builds capacity for the transformation of knowledge into action. Participants will learn to identify and address barriers to knowledge mobilization, transfer or exchange, and use tools and techniques to facilitate the development of evidence-informed policy and practice.
The program consists of three online courses:
- Inform: Processes of knowledge translation and dissemination (January 23 to March 19, 2017)
- Engage: Building capacity to understand and use relevant evidence (September 18 to November 12, 2017)
- Act: Transforming knowledge into action (January 22 to March 18, 2018)
Who should participate?
The certificate is targeted towards KMb practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and service providers working in the social sciences, human services and health sectors. We also welcome graduate students interested in building KMb skills or planning to work in one of these fields.
