Skills for Research Impact: Stakeholder Engagement

Tuesday October 13, 2020 1:00pm to 2:30pm


Skills for Research Impact is a webinar series for University of Guelph faculty, research staff and graduate students interested in enhancing the impact of their research. Through five core sessions facilitated by impact experts, participants will learn how to successfully plan, execute and evaluate knowledge mobilization (or knowledge translation and transfer) activities. 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, and will receive a letter of recognition at the end of the series.

On Tuesday, October 13 from 1-2:30 pm, Lindsey Thomson from the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute will discuss Stakeholder Engagement. This session will help participants reflect on how to engage stakeholders throughout the research process to increase impact, and review engagement best practices for policy, industry and community actors.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Identify a range of key stakeholders and potential goals for engagement
  •  List practical tips and important considerations for graduate students when planning to engage with stakeholders
  •  Understand different levels and types of stakeholder engagement before, during, and following the research process
  • Understand ethical and equity-based considerations for stakeholder engagement and reflect on key issues to apply in your own research
