Given the spread of misinformation online, it is critical that academic research make a difference. However, it can often be difficult to make research engaging and visible with the noise of the internet.The new practice of research curation offers a way to communicate research outcomes online to diverse audiences, building upon contemporary museum and social media marketing best practices.

After experimenting with social media and web communication strategies, we created a Research Curation Best Practice Guide based on our findings. It outlines strategies for effectively engaging audiences and presenting academic research outcomes online. It details how to develop a digital communication strategy and how to apply museum frameworks to web content development. It also shares social media best practices and lessons learned while outlining effective ways to reformat research outcomes into a selection of engaging media formats.

Changing the Conversation

We develop meaning and purpose through sharing our stories and in conversations

Some believe we have yet to begin the necessary conversations, while others argue there have been ongoing discussions over many decades that have not been heard. Some stories, such as growth have become so dominant, they have eliminated space about other perspectives. Changing the conversation is about re-enlarging public space and re-engaging different generations in virtual real-time e-Dialogues.

This intergenerational space is an experimental opportunity to rethink and reframe modern day challenges relevant to Canadian communities, to co-create innovative and scalable solutions. Governed by the principles of Socratic dialogue, this space hosts virtual real-time e-Dialogues and lead virtual peer-to-peer learning exchanges. It is also a repository for learning, best practices, tools and methodologies—a collaborative space to join or start a conversation.
