Sharing Our Results

Facilitating knowledge mobilization ensures our applied research goes beyond the page and into the community.

We are committed to sharing and translating our work not only with our academic colleagues both on campus and beyond, but with project stakeholders, policy makers, sector and community agencies, employers, learners, and the public at large.

Some examples of our knowledge mobilization efforts include:

Publications
Embracing complexity: Co-Creation with retired immigrant women

A central component in the end-of-grant phase of all applied research work is publishing articles in peer reviewed journals of record. This article discussing the results of the Enhancing Wellbeing and Civic Engagement of Immigrant Women Retirees project was a key element of our knowledge mobilization plan.
