The members of LÉPSIS value activities that encourage professionals to use the knowledge acquired from research carried out by the scientific community. Our interactions with people who work in the community, for example in education or in mental health, are very valuable, because they allow us to enrich our reflection and propose useful research projects for the real world.
This section aims to promote knowledge mobilization by sharing with the scientific community examples of knowledge transfer and mobilization activities as well as resources and tools to make such projects a reality.
Our team has tried and enjoyed using many of these tools; others have been recommended to us by colleagues who have appreciated them. Please note that we have no financial or other type of interests involving these tools; we share them with you simply because we are passionate about knowledge mobilization and we want to help those who wish to do it too!
If you have any comments or additional information for us (these services can change quickly!), please send them by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tools for carrying out knowledge mobilization projects
Knowledge mobilization projects carried out by students in the “PSY7127 Educational psychology graduate seminar” course
Dr. Véronneau, director of the laboratory, co-teaches this doctoral seminar. The main objective is to cover the broad field of educational psychology for new cohorts of doctoral students who are starting their journey in this section of the department. One of the course assignments involves the creation of knowledge mobilization project on a topic related to educational psychology that targets a specific audience chosen by each team. A review of the scientific literature, discussions in class and contacts with people representing the targeted audience make it possible to develop a full project within a few months. At the end of each academic year, teams who wish to do so are invited to publish their work here.
