Learning from colleagues about the challenges involved in mobilizing knowledge and discovering the solutions to those challenges is what the Research Transfer Network of Alberta (RTNA) conference, KT (Knowledge Transfer): Inspiring Change, is all about. 2013 promises to deliver this and more.
Fleur Macqueen Smith, Knowledge Transfer Manager, Healthy Children research team with kidSKAN, and I will be sharing our knowledge about how social media and knowledge mobilization work together to help researchers tell their stories and create the connections that matter.
Social media is here to stay, so if you haven’t embraced it as part of your knowledge mobilization toolbox, it’s time to consider it. We will guide your efforts to create a social media strategy that works for you. This workshop will help you understand how to:
- determine the target audiences you want to talk to
- decide which social tools to use
- create engaging content
- measure your progress
Join us in Banff, Alberta from October 9 to 11, 2013 as we share what we know about Using Social Media Effectively in Knowledge Mobilization Strategies. The preliminary program is now available and registration is open.
