Join OLC Tuesday, December 13, 2011 at 1:00PM ET for our webinar: Knowledge Mobilization & Adult Literacy – Tips & Tools for Research to Better Inform Literacy Policy & Practice, hosted by Michael Johnny, Manager of Knowledge Mobilization at York University.
This free, one hour session will provide an introduction and overview to knowledge mobilization, which is becoming increasingly prevalent at universities across Canada as a process to maximize the impact of research. This session will share the experiences of York University’s Knowledge Mobilization Unit and its numerous interactions within the adult literacy field.
In this webinar, participants will learn:
- What Knowledge Mobilization is;
- How is it supported at York University (especially in relation to adult literacy in Ontario); and
- What the strategies are for literacy practitioners to utilize research to inform professional practice and public policy.
There will also be time for questions at the end of the webinar.
