Scientist Knowledge Translation Training Workshop

Do your scientists, educators, policy and decision makers know how to translate knowledge?
Could your Knowledge Translation (KT) professionals benefit from practical KT training?
Do they understand why knowledge translation is important?
Can they develop a KT plan for grant proposals?

A knowledge translation (KT) or research translation plan is emerging as a research requirement. The SKTT™ workshop was developed on the premise that researchers are agents of change in creating research impact, promoting research utilisation, and ensuring that research findings reach the appropriate knowledge user audiences. This workshop was designed to teach the unique skillset that surrounds KT practice.

The SKTT™ workshop was developed at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, Canada. A world-leader in KT research and practice, SickKids is partnering with Knowledge Translation Australia™ to offer a tailored SKTT™ curriculum relevant to the Australian context. We are launching in Spring 2016 with workshops in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.

Participant Feedback

  • A pivotal step in my research journey

    I had a feeling attending this workshop would be a pivotal step in my research journey and I was right. I left feeling very much like I did a couple of years back, after meeting my career coach for the first time; except she didn’t have that incredible cake! Yum! I now have the tools I need to help translate my big picture thinking into practical outputs and outcomes.

  • Non-believer to believer!

    “I participated in a ‘Social Media Strategy for Scientists Workshop’ at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto that Tamika facilitated and it was excellent. All of the content was accessible, relevant, with enthusiastic and welcoming delivery. Watch out Twitter and Linkedin; here comes my professional social media channel to support my scholarly output, network building, and dissemination of my research to a broader scope of stakeholders.”
