CES Online Learning Goes Live: Welcome to the CES e-Institute!

Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter


The Canadian Evaluation Society's Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter (CES-NL) is a provincial chapter of the CES. The CES-NL brings together professionals from the public, community-based, private, and academic sectors who have an interest in results-focused management and accountability for investments in a wide range of programs and services. We provide evaluators in Newfoundland and Labrador with a link to the national platform and access to numerous local and national professional development opportunities.

The Research is Done, Now What?
Maximizing Your Reach by Presenting the Right Information

Date: Monday, November 6th

Presenters: Adam Pike, Andrea Pike, and Nicole Porter

Location: NLHHN Learning Center, 77 Charter Avenue, St. John's / Adobe Connect

Registration Cost: CES Members - $35.00 / Non-Members - $50.00 (Includes a one year CES-NL membership)

Content: Knowledge translation and dissemination is an important part of any research and evaluation project; if findings are not shared, opportunities for synergistic collaboration with policymakers and uptake among stakeholders are lost. However, research and evaluation is often conducted with limited funds, restricting our ability to engage professional services to generate the most effective knowledge sharing and dissemination materials, reducing our potential reach. In this workshop, you will learn techniques to present information and documentation more effectively using simple, low-cost data visualization tools to maximize the impact of knowledge translation and dissemination efforts. 

Method: The presenters will discuss how to prioritize information by audience, and demonstrate some tools and techniques for data visualization using examples from our own research unit. Participants will learn how to create an infographic using a free online tool

Objectives: In this session, attendees will learn how to effectively document research information and display study findings in easily digestible formats suitable for non-academic, non-researcher audiences.
