Infographic design is a useful skill for knowledge mobilization because it allows complex information to be presented in a visually engaging and easily understandable format. This makes your message accessible to a variety of audiences (who may not be familiar with the subject matter) and can help you communicate your research and its implications to a variety of stakeholders, including policymakers, practitioners, and the general public.
Presenting information in a visually appealing format increases engagement and fosters deeper understanding of the knowledge that you are trying to communicate. Infographics are also highly shareable, making it easier to increase the reach and impact of your work.
This module is designed for individuals who are interested in knowledge mobilization, regardless of their prior experience with graphic design. By the end of the module, you will have the skills you need to create effective infographics that can help you to communicate your research to a wider audience.
