Knowledge mobilization extends the social and academic impact of our research with our partners and communities. For the past several years the Tri-Council and other funders have increasingly emphasized the necessity for researchers to engage in knowledge mobilization with a variety of kinds of audiences: The public, professionals, practitioners, and policy makers, as well as academics. Your knowledge mobilization plan is now an important element in the success of your grant proposal. Additionally, visiblity of the social and academic impact of our research is part of the political strategy for securing public and government support for research funding in Canada. In working with Fac Ed researchers, we see that this is an area in which most applications can be further strengthened. As the Co-Director of the Knowledge Network for Applied Education Research, Dr. Katina Pollock brings extensive academic and practical expertise to the work of knowledge mobilization. Additionally, she served on the most recent SSHRC adjudication panel for Education and Social Work, giving her a strong inside sense of how grant proposals are reviewed from the funder's side. Katina can offer creative, effective, practical, affordable suggestions for researchers.

This workshop is intended for faculty planning to to apply for Tri-Council grants and research staff involved in grant proposal preparation and/or knowledge mobilization activities. A light lunch will be served. Please RSVP to by Nov. 30 if you would like to attend.
