Make your Messages Memorable Resources

In the field of knowledge mobilization individuals work to translate research into practice through making connections with key stakeholders and translating research findings into applicable formats. During this workshop you will learn more about the emerging field of knowledge mobilization and how you can apply certain key learnings to your own research and messages – ensuring that you present yourself and your work as highly relevant and memorable. These skillsets are invaluable for achieving success during interviews and networking experiences. Facilitator: Jayne Morrish, Centre for Lifespan Development Research
