Knowledge translation workshop part of ongoing series

Knowledge translation or mobilization plans are integral components of most scholarship or funding applications.

Grad students will draft a KT plan in a hands-on workshop facilitated by Knowledge Mobilization Officer Jayne Morrish.

The workshop takes place Thursday, Feb. 4 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in Cairns 207.

Learn simple tools to translate and market your research to a variety of audiences. This workshop will allow you to rehearse with simple language tools to meaningfully engage any audience; whether it’s a funder, colleague, potential employer or community of interest. Register here

The workshop is part of the Researcher Communication Series workshops offered to graduate students through the Faculty of Graduate Studies, VITAE Program.

Each skills-focused workshop is designed to offer conversations about the value, skills and opportunities to rehearse these skills across any work setting. It starts by exploring communication strategies to enhance your role as a junior researcher, and then show you how these same skills are highly valued in the world of work.
