Stuff You Need to Know as a Knowledge Creator - From Educators to Researchers and Beyond

Stuff You Need to Know as a Knowledge Creator - From Educators to Researchers and Beyond

This introductory session will bring together bits and pieces of important info you need to know as a knowledge creator before you get started.

  • What supports are available to you?
  • When do you need ethics approval (and who should you get it from)?
  • How do you prepare for sharing your project outcomes?
  • How is authorship assigned?

Attendees at this session will also be introduced to two upcoming streams in this series this fall, each with its own audience and dates.

  • Information in Action: Building Research Capacity from NSHA Research & Innovation targets early career investigators or research staff who are interested in learning more, assisting with or developing their own research studies.
  • Information in Action: Getting Buy-in for Your Knowledge Project has a broader audience and examines the way we support and engage in knowledge creation at work.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify existing supports and guidance for knowledge creation
  • Identify when ethics approval is required, and from whom
  • Understand the value added by preparing for publication and knowledge sharing at the start of your project
  • Consider appropriate recognition of contributions to your project through authorship or other acknowledgement

In Person: RMU Multimedia Room, Room 114, Centre for Clinical Research, 5790 University Avenue, Halifax
