Knowledge translation for research impact

With all the discussion around research impact and the impending move to increasing translation within research funding applications, this workshop could not come at a better time. Come and learn how translation is the pathway to research uptake, implementation and ultimate impact that creates benefits to society.

This training course was developed on the premise that scientists, 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 skill set surrounding KT practice, and it is these competencies that the training course is designed to impart. 


Treat yourself to two full days of immersion in knowledge translation learning, networking with other people doing translation activites and becoming comfortable with planning for KT and creating research impacts.

With a recent introduction to the concepts of KT I was excited and hopeful to be referred to Knowledge Translation Australia. I found Tamika to be a great ambassadress for the place and processes of KT in research and practice. I look forward to contributing to the 'closing of the loop'

I recently attended SKTT at the UWA university club in Perth. The facilitators were experienced and very knowledgeable. I met some interesting academics who are doing exciting medical research utilising technology. The attendees were from disciplines across the spectrum and what I learned applies many disciplines. The discussions were inspiring and I left with some creative ideas. I'd recommend this to anyone. Tamika made this two day course fun as well as informative.

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!
