This Phase I Final Report provides:

  • an overview of the purposes, mission, governance, and operation of the KNAER Phase I;
  • an analysis of roles and activities of the Planning and Implementation Committee (PIC) during Phase I;
  • a review of the work of the university partners during Phase I; and
  • an analysis of the knowledge mobilization (KMb) strategies, successes and challenges of the 44 KNAER Phase I projects.

To inform recommendations for a KNAER Phase II, the report draws on the above analyses of the utility of KNAER during its first phase, and evidence gathered from:

  • a review of relevant literature concerning KMb, research and practice connections and evidence informed practices;
  • interviews with nine experts in these fields; and
  • a series of four strategic planning sessions with Ontario educators and researchers as well as an online Twitter #KMbchat.

The report concludes with a proposed model for KNAER Phase II, which builds on, adapts, and advances the KNAER towards a "systems" approach to mobilizing knowledge within and across the Ontario education system.
