New Workshop Series Builds 'Skills for Research Impact'
Skills for Research Impact is a monthly workshop series for faculty, research staff and graduate students interested in enhancing the impact of their research. Through nine hands-on 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.
These sessions are open to researchers from across the University of Guelph. Join us for one or multiple sessions! Participants who complete seven or more workshops will receive a letter of recognition at the end of the series.

The monthly Guelph/KW Community of Practice sessions may also of interest for anyone involved in knowledge mobilization practices.
