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
We went through a mentorship with Tamika, to guide us in working with impact, when supporting researchers in writing funding applications. She has worked with us on all levels, from high-level concepts, to specific applications. The process has been extremely valuable, and we are much better equipped than before, to support the researchers. Additionally, we became inspired to consider how to work with impact, beyond application writing.
I loved the way the Tamika and Cathie packaged up the creation and communication of impact into a neat pathway that I can remember and refer back to
Every researcher will benefit from learning about research impact to improve their research outcomes and articulate the usefulness of the research. I recommend this training!
Our participants has been provided with a great foundation of what Research Impact is and some practical steps that they can use to start to start to think about the impact pathways of their own research
Tamika is an excellent facilitator; really great, practical advice and processes, and really understands how research works and what funders and external audiences look for. Very much worthwhile – one of the best sessions I’ve done
This workshop provides a great session in learning the research impact and how to design and make it happen
Tamika was great! It was a very engaging workshop and almost everything was new or relevant to the my field of research. I learnt so much from participating in the workshop. Thank you!
The information provided was timely and highly accessible. Communicating impact is hard and the training provided will enable me to do this better.
As a phd student, I feel like the workshop was a timely guideline for me in translating research to a scientific community for upcoming days. Very well designed and well prepared workshop for ECRs.
This workshop give me many useful tips to manage efficiently my main social channels
The workshop was very helpful in getting me started on my social media journey
A great way to maximise your social media presence and identity in the most efficient time.
