Specialists Knowledge Translation Training Workshop


These days, most research grants ask about research impact and or research translation or broader research benefits. Organisations are also being asked about how they benefit their broader stakeholders and impact society and the people they serve.

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.

This training course was developed on the premise that researchers, and increasingly, other practitioners and educators, are agents of change in creating research impact, promoting research utilisation, and ensuring that research findings reach the appropriate audiences. There is a skillset surrounding KT practice, and it is these competencies that the training course is designed to impart.

Spend four online sessions of three hours immersed in knowledge translation learning, networking with other people doing translation activities and becoming comfortable with planning for translation and the resulting impact.

About the workshop:

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 & New Zealand context.

Who should attend?

Are you a researcher, educator, policymaker, or knowledge translation (KT) professional? Do you want to know more about why KT is relevant? Do you need or want to know how to develop and evaluate a KT plan? Could you benefit from practical KT Training?

The course is appropriate for scientists (basic, clinical, health services, population health) as well as educators, clinicians and KT professionals (e.g., KT Specialist, KT Manager, Knowledge Broker). While the focus is on health, the material is highly relevant to individuals working in other sectors. SKTT is intended to build practical knowledge and skills, and prominent KT theories and models are also introduced.
