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

  • 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.

  • 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!

    Dr Anh L.H. Tran, Senior Lecturer in Humanitarian Engineering, Coventry University, UK

  • Grant success, thank you!

    “I appreciate the time Tamika took to understand my project so that she could give me relevant advice. She explained how to break down and communicate the translational steps clearly. “

    Dr Sarah Hilmer, University of Sydney

  • Highly recommend

    “I would highly recommend Tamika’s Knowledge Translation Workshop. It was great for brainstorming, interactive learning, and problem-solving.  The creative exercises got everyone relaxed and involved and the take-away handouts are an excellent resource moving forward.”

    Dr Amina Khambalia, Clinical and Population Perinatal Health Research, Kolling Institute, The University of Sydney
