When I got the email last night around 6pm saying that our Udemy course had been approved and made “live”, I was very excited. For several months, I have been working with KT Core Lead David Phipps and KT Assistant Jeannie Mackintosh, to create and deploy a FREE online course on how to achieve research impact by using a strategic planning and evaluation approach to research and KT planning.
The course has just launched on the Udemy platform, and in less than 24 hours since it went live, it already has 254 students enrolled from all over the world! To me, this shows how in-demand this topic is, as research funders are increasingly demanding evidence of impact from its grant recipients.
The course contains video lectures and downloadable form-fillable worksheets. It was designed for established researchers, graduate students, knowledge translation/mobilization professionals, research funders, and partners. David Phipps is the instructor, and describes his Co-Produced Pathway to Impact framework for planning and evaluation of research projects using stories and examples from his various work experiences.
It is a self-serve course, designed to help you think about how you approach the planning of your research and KT/KMb projects, using a logic model and concepts from the field of business. You can go through the course at your own pace, you will have full lifetime access to the course content, and you will receive a certificate upon completion!
If you would like to register for and take the course, you can access it using the following link: https://www.udemy.com/achieving-research-impact/
We hope you enjoy this course, and learn a lot that will help you with your work!
When you are finished the course, we’d really appreciate it if you could provide student feedback and rate your experience using the Udemy platform.
