e goal of this Field Note is to outline our experiences developing and maintaining aKnowledge Translation and Transfer-Knowledge Mobilization (KTT-KMb) LearningCircle for graduate students at the University of Guelph. Since the fall of 2013, we haveplanned and held events and training opportunities for graduate students across theuniversity’s colleges and maintained an online presence for our membership of 107students. In this article, we reflect on the successes of the Learning Circle, including asustained presence across an interdisciplinary group, securing funding, and engagingin successful collaborations. We also highlight our challenges, including attendance atevents, staying relevant in a quickly evolving field, and striving toward sustainability.Our hope is that this article provides a non-prescriptive guideline for students wishingto develop similar “by student, for student” initiatives to scaffold graduate studentlearning and engagement in KTT-KMb.
