Communicating Research Beyond Academia

Mihaela Gruia, Director of Research Retold, delivers a two-part workshop series on knowledge mobilization. In order to make an impact with your research, it is important to know how to share research findings with broader, non-academic audiences. Gruia explains how to create a communications plan that will aid researchers in translating long, complex research reports into documents that spark conservation.

By the end of this workshop series, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the importance of knowledge mobilization

  2. Apply knowledge mobilization concepts to individual contexts

  3. Describe the key components of a communications plan

  4. Develop a personalized communications plan

Proceed to the first session to get started.
