CIPSRT partners with University of Regina Community Engagement & Research Centre to offer a three part webinar series on community based research and knowledge mobilization.
The goal of this series is to bring community partners and researchers together to learn best practices for community based research and knowledge mobilization.
Session 1: What is Community Based Research?
February 10, 2021 12:00 pm- 1:00 pm CST
This webinar is designed for not-for-profit or public sector groups wishing to partner with researchers at a university, or organizations with
previous partnerships that hope to have more impactful outcomes from future collaborations with post-secondary education partners. The goal
of the session is to provide a better understanding of the benefits of partnering with universities and how to create research relationships that lead to impactful outcomes.
Presenter: Dr. Lynn Gidluck, Community Director of University of Regina’s Community Engagement and Research Centre (CERC)
Candace Giblett, Education Officer, Regina Fire and Protective Services
Lynn Fernandez, Manitoba Research Alliance
Jody Linklater, CEO of Clean Communities Corporation
Session 2: What is Knowledge Mobilization?
February 17, 2021 12:00 pm- 1:00 pm CST
This webinar is targeted to faculty, instructors, staff and students currently or hoping to do community-based research. A presentation
introducing the basics of Knowledge Mobilization (KM) followed by a panel of senior academics, with successful research careers, will share their
strategies for effective KM and speak to how to make non-traditional outputs and efforts “count” when it comes time for tenure and promotion.
Together with their community partners, we will provide the audience with ideas about how to make KM plans more than a section on a grant application.
Presenter: Emilie Kossick, MA, Knowledge Manager at the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment (CIPSRT)
Dr. Joy MacDermid, Clinical epidemiologist, physiotherapist, and Professor of Physical Therapy at Western University
Dr. Charles Z. Levkoe, Associate Professor and Canadian Research Chair in Sustainable Food Systems, Health Sciences Department Lakehead University
Dr. Nadine Changfoot, Associate Professor of Political Studies at Trent University
Session 3: Building Successful Partnerships
February 24, 2021 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm CST
This webinar will bring the target audiences from the first two webinars together and focus on the key steps to building successful research
partnerships. University researchers and their community partners will share their experience – what worked, what they had to learn to make
things more successful, tips for others looking to do community involved research.
Moderator: Dr. Shannon Dea, Dean of Arts and Professor of Philosophy and Classics at the University of Regina
Michael Johnny, Manager of Knowledge Mobilization at York University
Yvonne Hanson, Provincial Network Manager at Primary an Integrated Healthcare and Innovations Network, University of Saskatchewan
Sgt. Casey Ward, Regina Police Service, President of the Saskatchewan Federation of Police Officers
Dr. R. Nicholas Carleton, Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Regina, Scientific Director of CIPSRT
The collaborators on this project believe in supporting the movement to educate researchers on how to disseminate research more effectively. Research can only benefit the community if it is meaningful, relevant and accessible for stakeholder groups, communities, sectors, and decision-makers, who are in a position to act upon the findings and recommendations. This webinar series and associated materials are part of a larger project funded by Research Impact Canada through a grant from the Future Skills Centre.
