Research Impact Canada Knowledge Mobilization Course

Welcome to the RIC Knowledge Mobilization Course!

This course is skills based, with each module focused on teaching a specific skill that is important in knowledge mobilization (KMb).  These online modules are stand-alone and can be completed in any order, anytime. We invite participants to look at the portfolio of modules available and pick the ones that best suit their needs.

The purpose of this course is to:

  • Train participants with marketable skills to bring directly back to their workplace.
  • Provide tools to enable dissemination, uptake, and application of knowledge in an efficient and effective way.

Delivering this course to staff working in the skills and training ecosystem, we hope this course will allow participants to better connect and communicate ideas and innovations generated across Canada. With more trained in these applicable KMb skills, employees and employers can succeed in the labour market, and ensure that local, regional, and national economies thrive.

The target audience for this course includes:

  • Social innovation researchers and research managers,
  • Grant recipients from the Future Skills Centre,
  • University staff working in areas related to KMb, including but not limited to those working in: research communications, experiential learning, library services, grant facilitators, event planners, and knowledge brokers,
  • Community partners, including but not limited to staff at: community centres, advocacy groups, and non-governmental organizations,
  • Graduate students interested in better maximizing impact from their research.
