Planning a pathway to impact
Come with an idea, leave with a pathway to research impact.
Want an easier way to manage and plan for the impact of your research? There is an increasing number of research funders requesting translation elements and wanting greater impact from the work that gets funded.
This full-day workshop will enhance your chances of translation and research impact through planning. During the session, you will consider possible collaborations, avenues and tools for dissemination, and strategies to evaluate your impact creation goals. We will work through how translation elements can be embedded in your current project or the planning of a new project or grant proposal.
This is not just another workshop where you sit, listen and leave! This is an activity-packed workshop that involves individual thinking, planning, discussing your strategies and getting an outcome before you leave the room. The session, designed for researchers and research support staff, will guide you through the process of developing your pathway to impact. We will determine the stakeholders required, strategies to gain access to the right people, managing your stakeholder relationships, dissemination and translation activities, and the creation of the indicators of impact for your project. Come with your idea, leave with an impact pathway or plan, and get follow-up support included.
This workshop is aimed at researchers, research leaders and administrators that are looking to develop stronger links to industry and other external stakeholders. It will help you plan your research pathway for optimum impacts.

Leave us your details so we can tell you when we will be running a workshop near you. We will never give your details to anyone and we promise not to send you endless information!
To examine our performance (impact), and to provide feedback regarding the value of the workshop to the individual and their organisation.
All workshop participants get access to the Academy Membership for six months.
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.
The workshop was made accessible to all participants irrespective of their academic experience. Because of this, it really helped me to take away some practical tips and feel equipped to apply them to my own work. Highly recommend.
I enjoyed the workshop very much and I left with a solid understanding of how I could build impact pathways into my project design.
Tamika is a very engaging, knowledgeable and patient presenter. I enjoyed the workshop very much and I left with a solid understanding of how I could build impact pathways into my project design. I hadn’t thought about that before, and now I not only have an understanding of how to engage in knowledge translation, Tamika has given me the tools I need for that translation to generate real impact with my end users. And that’s what research should be about.
The session was wonderful, I’ve already updated my impact statements and had some glowing reviews about the new version. Thank you for being supportive and encouraging, as well!
I am excited and relieved to be successful for an NHMRC investigator award. Your session on preparing for this grant enabled me to get my head around what might be required in terms of research impact, and helped me articulate my research impact for the application. Thanks to your workshop, I learnt this important skill.
Thanks for an instructive and engaging workshop. It was really timely. I went straight to a research project planning meeting and could make suggestions to our design so we could capture metrics around impact which was great.
Really enjoyed the workshop, unfortunately I was only able to attend after morning tea, i found it was really helpful and helped me make plans to plan research with impact
I would recommend RI Academy to any researcher wanting to ensure real impact clinically or otherwise. Engage them early in your planning
We brought Tamika in to support us in commencing a Participatory Action Research project that will have high impact in CFA. Tamika has been great to work with right from the start and has given us valuable tools to create a research project that will have great impact. Through this process, we are starting our research off on a solid ground with a shared vision, smart goals and a map of our stakeholders.
KT Australia provides valuable objective opinion and guidance, enabling a more directed and cohesive application
It was great to have input from experts in how to write a research impact case for grant funding purposes. But importantly, they provided guidance as to what I need to do in the future to drive impact
KT Australia provided excellent advice and fine-tuning of impact, innovation and significance sections of grants I am leading.
“If I had done this KT Australia workshop with Tamika before embarking on my project, I would have been more successful in actually conducting knowledge translation in its true form – from dissemination to implementation in practice.”
I went from being a social media non-user to an active participant in just one day!
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’
