Knowledge Mobilization Workshop

Main Activity Hall, 2nd Floor, Koffler House, 569 Spadina Ave, University of Toronto

Registration for this event is now closed. Thank you for your interest.

This interactive workshop will be facilitated by Caroline Duvieusart-Déry, Knowledge Mobilization Coordinator, and Lindsey Thomson, Community Engaged Learning Manager, both with the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute at the University of Guelph. Caroline works with faculty members, students and community organizations to facilitate community-university partnerships and enhance the impact of research. Lindsey supports faculty members in building partnerships and curriculum for community-engaged learning.

In this workshop, Caroline and Lindsey will share strategies on how faculty can translate and disseminate knowledge that emerges from community-engaged learning courses. They will discuss various KMb tools and techniques that facilitate the implementation of evidence into practice and support target audiences in sustainable change. The workshop will be generative and will also introduce participants to the Certificate in Knowledge Mobilization, a new professional program offered at the University of Guelph as of January, 2017.

The Centre for Community Partnerships' Roundtables on Community-Engaged Learning aim to foster new ideas, thoughtful conversations and resource sharing among instructors. Join us at our next roundtable to discuss the creation and nurturing of reciprocal and respectful partnerships with Indigenous community organizations in community-engaged learning courses.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recommendations have importantly stressed the value of an expanded and deepened education for settler and Indigenous students on Indigenous histories, cultures and issues and have led to a rise in interest in community-engaged learning partnerships with Indigenous communities and organizations. How can we, as instructors of community-engaged learning courses, approach our courses and community partnerships so that we that contribute to the resources of Indigenous community organizations rather than tax them? How might we avoid imposing a “burden of help,” and, more significantly, move our students beyond an understanding of community-engaged learning as an exercise of “helping” towards goals of learning, solidarity and activism?
