Specialist Knowledge Translation Training: online workshop


Do your researchers, 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 (aka impact to pathway) is emerging as a common research and broader service requirement. The SKTT™ workshop was developed on the premise that researchers and knowledge brokers 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 the Research Impact Academy™ to offer a tailored SKTT™ curriculum relevant to the Australian context.

This workshop will show you how translation is the pathway to research uptake, implementation and ultimate impact that creates benefits to society and help you to develop and fine-tune your own plan for success.

We are running this workshop online over four half days. Be immersed in knowledge translation learning, network with other people doing translation activities and become comfortable with planning for translation and the resulting impact.
