workshops & training

Workshops

Develop specialist skills through bespoke workshops and follow up coaching with knowledge translation experts.

Our workshops are based on the latest research evidence and user case studies from around the globe. We are constantly scanning the latest evidence in the field of knowledge translation to bring you the very best.

We pride ourselves on providing a workshop structure, that is based on the philosophies underpinning translation, to provide the greatest opportunities for the ongoing sustainability of learning.

Each workshop includes:

 Evaluation

This allows us to examine our performance, and to provide feedback regarding the value of the workshop to the individual and their organisation.

Implementation

During the workshop participants will work on relevant elements for their own projects. Participants will leave with ideas and a plan of next steps to be undertaken. In some cases, all implementation may be possible during the workshop period.

Workbook

Participants will have a valuable resource to refer back to as they implement their new knowledge.

Coaching

Access tailored implementation support in a follow-up coaching session. All workshops include a follow-up coaching session with each participant to cover any questions and concerns and to facilitate the implementation process.

Action plan

Participants will use action items developed throughout the workshop to develop their plan for the coming months. The plan is developed in a purposeful and strategic way to help progress learning and make sure that time out for this workshop is not wasted but instead leveraged.

What people are saying about our workshops….

  • Fabulous

    Many thanks for a fabulous workshop – the presenter, content and afternoon tea were all wonderful!

    Lynda McNamara, Queensland Cerebral Palsy Health Service Department of Health

  • 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.

    Dr Nikki Sims-Chilton, Principal Project Officer, Office of the Queensland Chief Scientist

  • We All Came Away with Greater Understanding

    Tamika delivered the two-day SKTT course to a group of 25 researchers at Melbourne Children’s. We all came away with greater understanding and ability to apply KT theories, frameworks and approaches in our work. Tamika is an engaging and knowledgeable presenter whose training will help individuals and organisations realise their research impact goals.

  • Worthwhile

    Updated and added to my existing knowledge

    Workshop Attendee, Massey University

  • Thank you

    Effective and interactive presenter who made it enjoyable for beginners.

    Workshop Attendee, Deakin University VIC

  • Skilled Facilitation and Worthwhile Workshop

    I found the introductory overview of the terminology and the scope of the issue helpful and made many links to my research and collaborative engagement with schools. The design of the interactive task was valuable in asking us to consider how to build considerations of translation into ongoing or upcoming projects.

    Letitia Fickel, Head of School at University of Canterbury, NZ

  • 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!

    Elizabeth Clarke, PhD, BE, BSc, Director Murray Maxwell Biomechanics Laboratory, Sub-Dean (Early Career Researchers), Northern Clinical School, Sydney Medical School, The University of Sydney

  • I Truly Enjoyed this Workshop

    I truly enjoyed this workshop and have made some relevant decisions for our research projects based on the content and ideas presented.

    Dr Ana Mantilla, Research Associate and Project Manager, Learning Sciences Institute Australia, Australian Catholic University

  • Provides a Comprehensive Overview

    “The KT Workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the field of knowledge translation with usable resources to match. It is particularly relevant for those new to the field and/ or for those wanting to embed knowledge translation into their, or their organisation’s research agenda”.

    Dr Rachelle Arkles, Research Fellow, Translational Health Research Institute, Western Sydney University

  • This Was Really Great

    Thanks again! Despite being a bit beyond me (i.e. the workshop was pitched more so at late ECRs and early MCRs), this was really great info for me know and practice in moving forward.

    Workshop Attendee, Griffith University

  • Outstanding investment of my time

    Outstanding investment of my time…one of the best all day workshops I have attended.

  • More successful in conducting knowledge translation

    If I had done this KT Australia workshop with Tamika before embarking on my project, I would have been more successful in actually conducting knowledge translation in its true form – from dissemination to implementation in practice.”
