KT roadmap 2

Planning a pathway to impact

Come with an idea, leave with a plan.

Want an easier way to manage and plan for the impact of your research? There are an increasing number of research funders requesting translation plans and wanting greater impact from the work that gets funded.

This full-day workshop will enhance your chances of translation and research impact through planning. During the session, you will consider possible collaborations, avenues and tools for dissemination, and strategies to evaluate your translation goals. We will work through how translation elements can be embedded in your current project or the planning of a new project or grant proposal. 

This is not just another workshop where you sit, listen and leave! This is an activity-packed workshop that involves individual thinking, planning, discussing your strategies and getting an outcome before you leave the room. The session, designed for researchers and research support staff, will guide you through the process of developing your pathway to impact. We will determine the stakeholders required, strategies to gain access to the right people, managing your stakeholder relationships, dissemination and translation activities, and the creation of the indicators of impact for your project. Come with your idea, leave with a plan, and get follow-up support included.

Intended audience:

Participant feedback

  • Excellent Workshop

    I attended the knowledge translation roadmap workshop yesterday in preparation for a research fellowship application. This was a fantastic experience – Tamika was very knowledgeable and engaging, the content was relevant and interesting, and I have left the workshop feeling transformed. This will change the way I plan my research and no doubt will lead to better translation of my research. Thank you!

  • 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. “

  • Very Useful

    I really enjoyed your workshop today about knowledge translation and research impact. I found it very useful and will certainly be implementing some ideas.

  • 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.”

  • Thank you!

    Your ability to understand my project and apply KT principals helped me to unlock, then articulate the best way to plan and describe the successful translation and implementation of my proposed project. I will hopefully contact you with news of my successful Fellowship and definitely look to engaging your talents to increase my skills and then improve outcomes for trauma patients across New South Wales!

  • 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.
