Training Hub

The Training Hub is led by Principal Investigator Dr. Daniel Fuller and Postdoctoral fellow Dr. Kaitlyn Kauffeldt.    

The Training Hub is dedicated to enhancing the capacity of practitioners, trainees, and early career researchers to apply learnings from implementation science to support the development of sustainable transportation initiatives. Through targeted virtual trainings, in-person workshops, and summer internships the hub will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to tackle many of the challenges to building healthier cities.

Virtual training: We are partnering with investigators from the University of Victoria, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Saskatoon, to offer a 7-week virtual course on Implementation and Scale Up. The course will provide participants with a foundational understanding of implementation and scale up science (e.g., theories, models, frameworks, evaluation methods), and create opportunities for experiential learning through the use of real case studies. The first offering of the Implementation and Scale Up course is planned for Spring 2024/Fall 2024.

In-person workshops: We will run two in-person summer institutes offering in-depth training on implementation science combined with practical work with city partners. The in-person summer institutes aim to provide participants with an understanding of key implementation science concepts and principles, equip participants to apply implementation science methods in sustainable transportation contexts, and enhance interdisciplinary collaboration. The first CapaCITY/É Summer Institute is planned for 2024.

Summer internships: We will work with our partner cities to develop 12-week summer internships where participants work within cities on the practical challenges they may face to implementing sustainable transportation interventions.

Embracing Diversity

The Training Hub is strongly committed to diversity within our community and especially welcomes participation from French-speaking individuals, persons with disabilities, Indigenous persons, and racialized persons. Lived experience as a member of an equity-deserving group will be considered an asset.
