Develop your knowledge, skills and values with respect to knowledge mobilization (KMb) and learn to select and apply KMb tools and techniques to move knowledge into action.
Addressing today's complex social, economic, health or environmental challenges calls for our increased capacity to collaborate in finding and implementing innovative solutions. While a vast amount of knowledge is created every day, only a fraction of it is effectively mobilized—shared, used and applied—to inform real-life situations. This lack of knowledge transfer or exchange is contributing to a gap between research, policy and practice, which hinders social innovation and slows down progress.
With a total of three courses to complete, this certificate seeks to contribute to closing this gap by providing you with the necessary tools to enable the efficient and appropriate dissemination, uptake and application of knowledge.
Upon successful completion of this program, you will be able to:
- Build and implement knowledge mobilization strategies adapted to the needs and goals of your organization or sector
- Identify and use evidence from a number of sources and disciplines, and present research findings in ways that make information accessible, relevant and applicable
- Understand the key skills and competencies of knowledge brokering and stakeholder engagement
- Turn knowledge into action and support the development of evidence-based policies and programs
- KMb Practitioners
- Service Provider
- Policy Maker
