9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Creating Clear Infographics

Are you working on a research project and wonder how you can share your findings to a wider audience? Are you considering creative ways of reporting your results to participants, industry, or the general public? An infographic is one way of sharing your project’s key take-aways clearly and effectively. Infographics can be customized to a variety of audiences and can be shared digitally and in print, making them a good option for summarizing large volumes of information with maximum reach. (Plus, they are fun to make!)

In this workshop, you will learn the purposes, key principles and approaches to creating clear infographics. A variety of examples will be shared to demonstrate the range of ways infographics can serve your knowledge sharing needs. You will engage in activities to practice creating components of an infographic and will learn about different types of software you can use to develop infographics for your research.

Prerequisites:
A basic understanding of Microsoft Word and PowerPoint is required. This course is designed for beginners and no previous experience with infographics is required.

Prepare:
No preparation is required. Have your computer with Microsoft Word & PowerPoint installed and/or paper/pen ready to practice mapping out components of an infographic. It may also be helpful to reflect on any existing projects you are working on and consider the role/impact an infographic might have in your work (however, this is not required).

  • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Questionnaire Design, Sampling & Recruitment

    Many people underestimate the art and science that goes into developing and designing a good survey. This 2-day workshop will help you develop surveys that are both valid (truly answer your research questions) and reliable (respondents understand what you are asking).

    The instructor - the Vice President of Ipsos Public Affairs in Canada - will draw on several decades of research on survey design and response process as well as his own experience as a researcher, teacher and consultant in survey design. It is the perfect synthesis between theoretical and practical, real-world approaches.

    Among other topics, conceptualization, operationalization, the survey development process, survey structure and format, question wording, and online surveys will be discussed. The workshop is conducted in an interactive way and participants will be able to apply their knowledge through practice exercises.

    Prerequisites:
    It is easy to follow with no prior knowledge needed.

  • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Story Creation Through Film in a Time of Crisis

    In the current era of multiple converging crises impacting our society, friends, families and communities, it is clearly critical for social change advocates to find ways to ‘get the word out’ more effectively on how best to respond, building toward a more just and sustainable society. The current coronavirus pandemic puts additional restrictions on the potential mediums of response, as physical distancing is encouraged and more and more people move to online modes of communication.

    Film-based storytelling is uniquely positioned to communicate the current crises and potential responses, and can reach large audiences who are already presently engaging online.

    This online workshop will focus on filmmaking approaches that can be applied in the current situation, providing participants with the opportunity to develop their own powerful short film story to share. This will include a practical exploration of core strategies for film pre-production (concept / story development), production (shooting the film) and post production (editing, polishing and distribution).

    The workshop aims to give participants an in-depth understanding of creating a strong short film from start to finish that speaks to the issues of concern to you and your community, connects emotionally with your viewers, and helps move your target audience to action.

    Who is this for? Anyone interested in using film as a mode of knowledge mobilization for community-based work, providing you have permission to share it.

    Prepare:
    Ideally, please have a story in mind, but this is not required.
