Mastering Research Translation
What on earth is Knowledge Translation (KT)?
KT is a complex and confusing topic, made even more so by the multitude of terms used to describe it. It is often argued that not only do the different terms have different meanings but that KT means different things to different people, ranging from communication to linkage and exchange.
KT is sometimes confused with or thought of as dissemination, communication, commercialisation, technology transfer, or continuing medical education. However, it is important to conceptualise what is meant by the term knowledge translation as a system rather than to continue debate on terminology and differences in meaning.
This workshop helps you to master research translation. We provide a background on knowledge translation and how all the components come together in one system that results in a pathway to research impact.
If you want greater reach, bigger outcomes, and better impact from your research then you need to master your translation processes.
This workshop is for researchers and research support staff that want to build their understanding and mastery of the fundamentals of research translation.
- Learn how to get the right information, to the right people, at the right time, in a way they can use.
- Understand the terminology, definitions, and the history of knowledge translation.
- See knowledge translation as a system that encompasses all the steps between the creation of knowledge to the outcomes and delivery of knowledge.
- Learn about the models and frameworks for translation.
- Enhance your chances of KT success and research impact through step by step development of a KT strategy.
- View an example plan. See how translation elements can be embedded in your current project, or the planning of a new project or grant proposal.

All our workshops include
To examine our performance (impact), and to provide feedback regarding the value of the workshop to the individual and their organisation.
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.
Handouts, activity sheets and information. Participants will have a valuable resource to refer back to as they implement their new knowledge.
All workshops include a follow-up coaching session with each participant to cover any questions and concerns and to facilitate the implementation process.
Participants will use action items developed during the workshop to develop a purposeful and strategic plan. We make sure that time out for this workshop is not wasted but instead leveraged.
What people are saying about our workshops
Thank you, I can highly recommend this course, it provides an excellent roadmap, with practical and constructive advice
This research impact workshop is enlightening, transformative and practical for planning and writing a highly competitive and stringent grant application. It has helped me think about my work from multiple perspectives and bring, what seemed like disparate parts, together to identify that my early career research has impact on the broader world.
It is amazing to see someone present so clearly on how to address applications for NHMRC – she explained the rationale for each section so nicely and will assist many in writing better quality applications.
Information will make a difference to my applications and other areas of work
I’ve never been given any training in NHMRC grant applications, so this information was all new to me and very valuable. The speaker was fantastic!
Dr. Tamika Heiden’s presentation was superb. It was such a pleasure to know what NHMRC looks for in grant applications. Moreover, she gave useful personalized tips that helped demystify the writing of impact statements.
It provides me with a big picture of how I should think about writing a grant application.
The murky and fuzzy terminology of research impact is now clear to me and it is also crystal clear the steps I need to take to try and increase the impact of my research.
The workshop gives excellent points on how to highlight the impact of our work
Great delivery, excellent content and information, engaging workshop
It was an inspiring workshop with practical examples. It made me to rethink about not only how I can create impact cases from current studies, but also how to design new research studies.
Brilliant workshop, contents were well organised and easy to understand. Great course materials, with a good amount of activities to help put knowledge to practice
The training itself helped me to understand about what impact is, how to plan for it and the different ways of capturing the impact data
I have just had my 1:1 consult with Tamika and wanted to say thank you for facilitating both the training webinar and the consultations with Research Impact Academy and Tamika. I will be finishing my PhD in the next 6-8 months and whilst at first I was hesitant to sign up, feeling like I didn’t have enough to consider or plan for, I’m so glad I did. The training itself helped me to understand about what impact is, how to plan for it and the different ways of capturing the impact data. The consultation with Tamika was brilliant- Tamika offered me so many insights about what to do with my PhD work- I had some draft ideas but now it will be more refined, and I will be able to plan for capturing the evidence of impact moving forward.
