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….

  • Inspiring!

    I have achieved one of my goals from my 90 day action plan already as I was motivated to tick one of my boxes off early! (Took 2hrs)

    Workshop Attendee, NSW Local Health District

  • This workshop was excellent

    This workshop was excellent, Tamika was really engaging and it was great to hear from someone who had experience in a biomedical field

    Workshop Attendee, La Trobe University

  • Fantastic

    Fantastic Workshop – would recommend to others.

    Workshop Attendee, NSW Local Health District

  • Very Useful

    Very useful. Every ECR should attend this workshop to start a research career.

    Workshop Attendee, Griffith University

  • Interesting and Enlightening

    As an experienced teacher and a novice researcher I found the Mastering Knowledge Translation Workshop to be both interesting and enlightening. There is a vast amount of literature on the value of research in education and equally as much literature on the value of good teaching practice. The conceptual framework presented in the workshop illustrated for me a way that research could be communicated more effectively to inform and change practice.

    Dr Christina Lee, School of Education, Edith Cowan University

  • It was an extremely insightful experience

    It was an extremely insightful experience to attend the inaugural KT Australia workshop on Research Impact for NHMRC Investigator Grants at the University of Melbourne in late 2018. Tamika and Cathie introduced key strategies including targeting a single research program of highest impact and providing compelling evidence of impact, and put them in the context of the increasing importance of research impact to funding bodies. The atmosphere of the session was overwhelmingly positive and there was significant time for both interactive group learning and individual proposal development. The follow-up with Tamika and Cathie via email and video conference after the session was critical to refine the proposal and produce a finished product. I would encourage other medical researchers to better understand the impact of their research through participation in this course

    Michael Hildebrand, PhD, Associate Professor, University of Melbourne

  • 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

  • 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.

    Antoine Musu, Doctoral Scholar & Educator, Business School, University of Western Australia

  • Thank you

    Effective and interactive presenter who made it enjoyable for beginners.

    Workshop Attendee, Deakin University VIC

  • 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.

    Jane Coombs, Research and Development, Mater Hospital Foundation, Brisbane

  • 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.”
