Communicate Your Research
The dissemination of results and outcomes is an essential part of research and scholarship. ORSCE is committed to working with our scholarly community to ensure the full value of research is employed in creating positive change.
We offer workshops, special events and one-on-one consultation with researchers to improve the quantity and quality of scholarly communication and knowledge mobilization. In addition, we host an annual Research and Scholarship Week on campus each spring to celebrate and share the great work of the MRU community.
Knowledge Mobilization Guide
The Knowledge Mobilization Guide can help Mount Royal researchers disseminate their scholarship beyond the academic journal. It provides tips for considering and reaching multiple audiences, using social media effectively, and working with the media. The Guide includes Mount Royal examples and instructions for developing Discovery Snapshots.
Discovery Snapshots are two-to-four page, highly visual research summaries that translate complex scholarship into clear messages suitable for multiple non-scholarly audiences. The Snapshots are conceptually based on a model first developed at Mount Royal University by Design4Change.
Discovery Snapshots are about ensuring your scholarship has the widest reach and impact. Once completed, the Discovery Snapshots are yours to disseminate via a range of channels to the public, practitioners, organizations, potential funders, students or other audiences.
