Learn ways to ensure your project makes a lasting impression

Knowledge Mobilization (KM) comes in all shapes and mixes, from briefing notes to workshops; community engagement to co-creation of research questions. Learn how through the KM Webinar Series. Starting in October 2018, the new KM Webinar Series will cover a variety of topics to help you harness the power of KM to ensure your project makes a lasting impression.

Knowledge Mobilization Webinar Series

The KM Core Team is hosting a series of webinars to increase awareness about the value and principles of KM. Aimed at students, young professionals, researchers and PI’s in the GWF network, the webinar series will provide content that touches on various elements of KM, share examples of successful initiatives in action, and discuss and troubleshoot common challenges that arise across the network. 

Scheduled between November 2018 and April 2019, the webinar series will facilitate:

  • your understanding of what KM is, what it isn't;
  • how to engage specific groups of end-users; and
  • can even help with your yearly reporting!

Webinar 4: KM and Communications - What's the difference and how can they complement

Knowledge Mobilization (KM) is often talked about as a synonym for communications and outreach. Although these terms are linked and often occur with a great deal of overlap, there are some important differences in their approach and outcomes that are critical for KM success. This webinar will be hosted by WLU’s KM Specialist Andrew Spring, and will discuss these terms when each is appropriate, and what they mean to GWF projects by highlighting good KM, communication and outreach efforts across the network. Participants will be introduced to some key communication and outreach tools available to help projects plan and implement more effective KM.
