Register now for the Fall 2019 Knowledge Mobilization Workshop Series

Scholarly Publishing and Open Access plus a stylized book with the open access symbol

If you would like to ensure that your research is read, understood, and discussed by the broadest possible audience, join us this fall for a series of hands-on, interactive workshops on knowledge mobilization.

Successful knowledge mobilization strategies ensure that academic research can be used by teachers, policy makers, health care practitioners, and the general public to make evidence-based decisions that will effect real world change

What is knowledge mobilization? 

Knowledge mobilization includes the processes by which research is translated or synthesized into plain language and made available for the public. SSHRC, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, defines it more broadly as "[t]he reciprocal and complementary flow and uptake of research knowledge between researchers, knowledge brokers and knowledge users—both within and beyond academia—in such a way that may benefit users and create positive impacts" (SSHRC, 2018).

Data visualization with Tableau: The painless, programming-free way to build charts and graphs

Tableau is a data visualization tool that can help you analyze your data and illustrate the patterns and insights behind them. This interactive workshop will introduce researchers to Tableau Public, a free access version of Tableau.

You will leave this workshop with an understanding of how to:
  • connect datasets to your Tableau workbook;
  • create a variety of basic chart types (including bar charts, line graphs, and maps);
  • use Tableau's built-in analysis features, like reference lines, trend lines and calculated fields; and
  • publish and share publication-quality interactive charts and graphs.
Requirements: Participants will need to bring their own laptop and charger. Before the workshop, please download and install the latest version of Tableau Public to your laptop.
