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.

  • Fantastic

    The workshop was fantastic. It was one of the the most useful training session I’ve ever attended.

    Dr. Natassia Goode, Senior Research Fellow and Theme Leader Organisational Safety Centre for Human Factors and Sociotechnical Systems, University of the Sunshine Coast

  • 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

    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)
