Intro to KT with title

What on earth is knowledge translation? Knowledge translation (KT) means different things to different people. If you want greater reach, bigger outcomes, and better impact from your research then this is the journey for you.

  • Learn how to get the right information, to the right people, at the right time, in a way they can use.
  • Understand the terminology, definitions, and the history of knowledge translation.
  • See knowledge translation as a system that encompasses all the steps between the creation of knowledge to the outcomes and delivery of knowledge.
  • Learn about the models and frameworks for translation.
  • Enhance your chances of KT success and research impact through step by step development of a KT strategy.
  • View an example plan. See how translation elements can be embedded in your current project, or the planning of a new project or grant proposal.

What people are saying about our workshops

  • Excellent presentation and workshop

    This workshop opened my eyes to world of engagement, allowing me to see alternatives in the way research could be disseminated to the public realm. The method of extending and improving the research or knowledge, through the use of impacts measures, whether it be GIS based, or even statistic based measures was wonderful, I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop.

  • Very informative

    Very enthusiastic, energetic, good presentation skills, dynamic

  • Great workshop

    Tamika facilitated a great workshop which provided the participants with a lot of food for thought. Researchers are often stuck in their research and grant writing bubble but Tamika’s workshop challenged how they thought about their work, interactions with industry and approach to writing grants. Feedback from the participants was very positive and I am sure they all walked away with many valuable pieces of advice and practical applications.

  • Engaging, helpful and a good use of time

    This workshop was great. Tamika was fantastic. She understood the constraints and realities of academic workloads and provided effective and efficient strategies for using social media. I would highly recommend this workshop to colleagues. Thanks for the opportunity and the new social media skills – I have already put them to use! I am looking forward to the follow-up.

  • Passionate and knowledgeable

    Tamika is passionate and knowledgeable about strategies to turn research into positive outcomes for society. Drawing on her extensive experience working with researchers and research organisations, particularly in North America, Tamika is an engaging and thought provoking speaker and educator.  She will definitely challenge you and your team to think outside the square about how to increase awareness about your research, and maximise its impact.
