Research Commons Workshop – Innovation York: Knowledge Mobilization Planning
How do you make your research relevant, useful for everyday life?
Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) takes the best of what we know and makes it useful to communities. And while dissemination of research results is important, KMb is embedded throughout the entire research process. Planning is a critical first step. The KMb Unit will share emerging tools and offer researchers greater capacity to develop a knowledge mobilization plan for their research project, demonstrating how knowledge mobilization aligns itself with engaged scholarship and principles of data equity.
Two faculty members will share their experiences in developing successful knowledge mobilization plans. They will discuss the importance and integration of KMb practices throughout their project, and their scholarship.
