Knowledge Transfer Tools : Quick Studies

April 30, 2019 – 6:17 pm | Comments Off15 views

Diversity CLUES Consulting produces quick studies on a variety of topics. From key facts about Local Immigration Partnerships to key dates in the history of Corporate Social Responsibility, we believe that well-organized ‘quick studies’ and graphically-engaging infographics greatly improve readers’ understanding of comprehensive topics .

 

Over 66% of population are visual learners; meaning that they best remember information presented through visual illustration. Additionally, knowledge transfer tools, such as ‘brief summary’ or plain language synopsis that provides key facts or findings have proven to enhance readability of the content and engage ‘non-specialist audience’.

Quick studies produced by Diversity CLUES Consulting aim to make our research and learning more accessible to broader audience. We believe in the power of knowledge translation and knowledge mobilization and invite you to learn with us.

Planning Canada: A Case Study Approach

April 6, 2018 – 11:07 am | Comments Off0 views

Olga Shcherbyna, along with Nora Angeles and John Foster, co-authored a chapter in a new Canadian planning textbook which brings together a collection of essays and studies covering a wide array of planning topics. Edited by Ren Thomas, the textbook includes a range of practice and research based cases in eight areas: community and social planning, urban form and public health, natural resource management, housing, participatory processes, urban design, urban redevelopment, and transportation and infrastructure planning. They include examples from urban, rural, and Aboriginal communities across the country.

Planning Canada: A Case Study Approach is intended to introduce undergraduate students in planning, geography, and urban studies to the planning discipline in Canada, but the case studies offer enough depth to be used in graduate courses as well.
