What is Knowledge Translation?

Knowledge translation is known by many terms including research translation, knowledge transfer and exchange, and engaged scholarship.

In a nutshell, knowledge translation is about getting the right information, to the right people, at the right time, and in a format they can use, so as to influence decision making.

Knowledge translation should be thought of as a system of processes that enable the development, dissemination, implementation, evaluation and impact of research evidence for those who need it. It requires collaboration, innovation, and the development of sustainable solutions.

Let’s talk

Dr Tamika Heiden – Principal, Knowledge Translation Australia.

Hi, I’m Tamika Heiden, Principal and Founder.

I don’t know about you, but I became a researcher so that I could change the world! I guess I was a bit optimistic, but I really wanted to discover new things, I wanted to help people, and I wanted to make a difference somehow. These are values that have stayed with me, but I have realised that research alone, and the discovery of new evidence alone, will not make the difference that I was aiming for. I have realised the need to work in new ways to ensure that the findings of research get to the people who need to know about it, or who need to use it. Importantly, I have found and learnt proven methods, models and frameworks that can help.

Words from our raving fans!

  • Great Success, Thank you!

    “I appreciate the time Tamika took to understand my project so that she could give me relevant advice. She explained how to break down and communicate the translational steps clearly. “

    Dr Sarah Hilmer, University of Sydney

  • Valuable experience

    One of the more valuable workshops I have attended in quite a while.

    Workshop Attendee, Massey University

  • I Truly Enjoyed this Workshop

    I truly enjoyed this workshop and have made some relevant decisions for our research projects based on the content and ideas presented.

    Dr Ana Mantilla, Research Associate and Project Manager, Learning Sciences Institute Australia, Australian Catholic University

  • A Most Valuable Half-day in the Two-Year Research Journey Thank you, Tamika.

    It was a pleasure attending this workshop. A conscious effort to maximise the use and application of research arguably involves stakeholders. Understanding the KT process model has helped me demystify any complexities I had and provided me with a plan to heighten the impact of work I have immersed myself in.

    Antoine Musu, Doctoral Scholar & Educator, Business School, University of Western Australia

  • Provides a Comprehensive Overview

    “The KT Workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the field of knowledge translation with usable resources to match. It is particularly relevant for those new to the field and/ or for those wanting to embed knowledge translation into their, or their organisation’s research agenda”.

    Dr Rachelle Arkles, Research Fellow, Translational Health Research Institute, Western Sydney University

  • Excellent Workshop

    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!

  • Thank you Tamika!

    Thanks Tamika. I truly enjoyed this workshop and have made some relevant decisions for our research projects based on the content and ideas presented.

  • Interesting and Enlightening

    As an experienced teacher and a novice researcher I found the Mastering Knowledge Translation Workshop to be both interesting and enlightening. There is a vast amount of literature on the value of research in education and equally as much literature on the value of good teaching practice. The conceptual framework presented in the workshop illustrated for me a way that research could be communicated more effectively to inform and change practice.

    Dr Christina Lee, School of Education, Edith Cowan University

  • Inspiring!

    I have achieved one of my goals from my 90 day action plan already as I was motivated to tick one of my boxes off early! (Took 2hrs)

    Workshop Attendee, NSW Local Health District

  • Very Useful

    I really enjoyed your workshop today about knowledge translation and research impact. I found it very useful and will certainly be implementing some ideas.
