KIS Graduate Student Research
(project status: ongoing)
Knowledge Impact in Society currently has one graduate student
working on Master's level research project. Yvonne Hanson is looking at the evolution
of the local food movement.
1. Yvonne Hanson
Ms. Hanson is working towards an M.Ed. in Continuing Education at the
University of Saskatchewan. Her graduate supervisor is Marcia McKenzie.
In her graduate research, Yvonne is looking at the evolution of the
local food movement. KIS' is interested in Yvonne's work because she
will be using the local food movement as an example of knowledge transfer.
Part of her research will involve answering questions such as "how
did local food get its start?", "who were the people responsible
for spreading the word about local food?", "how did adoption
of local food in local systems occur?". Her research is studying
an actual example of knowledge mobilization.
