The creation of productive contexts for knowledge mobilization (KMb) requires acting on the factors enhancing or limiting individual, organizational and societal capacity for using and sharing evidence. The course focuses on the processes and products that support target audiences in engaging with new evidence, and build capacity to identify, make sense of, and apply relevant evidence.
“Engage” is the second of three online courses offered in the University of Guelph Certificate in Knowledge Mobilization. Courses are targeted towards professionals in the social sciences, human services and health sectors. They can be completed in any order, with one course offered each semester.

The Knowledge Mobilization Certificate program is excellent and has provided me with better tools to assist researchers in communicating their knowledge to a broader community of interest. The course is well designed, highly practical and the instructors are knowledgeable and responsive to student needs. I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in ensuring that research is shared beyond the academy.
