The Role of Communication in Knowledge Co-production
Researchers and practitioners involved in knowledge co-production each use their own specialized language. An important part of successful knowledge co-production involves establishing shared terms of references. Communicating effectively and developing the ability to distill complex topics into clear, vivid, and understandable language is challenging. This webinar will explore the role of communication in the process of knowledge co-production and will share some communication best practices that participants can apply in their work.
