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

  • Many thanks Tamika! I just want to say that what you do – bringing “impact” to the forefront of researchers mind is so important and valuable to society! Keep up the fantastic work!

    Really good presenter, really liked the model.

  • A most valuable half-day in the two-year research journey Thank you, Tamika.

    It was a pleasure attending this workshop. A conscious effort to maximise the use and application of research arguably involves stakeholders. Understanding the KT process model has helped me demystify any complexities I had and provided me with a plan to heighten the impact of work I have immersed myself in.

  • Wow!

    Just wow! I cannot wait to apply everything I have learned. I look forward to following your advice and really soaking everything in over the next few days. I have 4 FB pages, 3 Twitter accounts, 3 LinkedIn accounts, and an Instagram. Your Hootsuite suggestion may have just saved my sanity. Top notch workshop. I cannot wait to see you back in Canada or virtually in a webinar.
