Academic conferences are often utilized for capacity building for graduate students and early career faculty members. The impact of COVID-19 and the subsequent cancellation of conferences in 2020 and the movement to online engagement over the next year created both a gap and opportunity for the Canadian Association of Gerontology. Their student association leadership contacted York’s Knowledge Mobilization Unit to explore the offering of a non-credit course, MobilizeYU, intended to offer skills and insight on knowledge mobilization. Through a co-creation process, the course framework was integrated into a series of sessions which integrated gerontology expertise and content into knowledge mobilization skills development and capacity building sessions. Based on feedback from participants and leadership, this programme was a success. There were direct and positive scholarly impacts and plans are already in place to deliver this programme again to Gerontology graduate students and early career faculty across Canada for Summer 2023.
