Today’s researchers understand it’s no longer enough to do research, write up the results and present them at a conference of like-minded peers. The work has to be mobilized–out of the ivory tower and into the hands and minds of those who will use it to shape emerging policies and practices. The speed of global change means this process of knowledge translation, transfer or exchange has to happen quickly and continuously so that research can be used before its shelf life expires.
Knowledge translation and transfer are complex and abstract. It can be difficult to know if you are getting the outcome you want and even more difficult to quantify results and evaluate the success of your strategies. Building on Translating Research into Policy and Practice – An Introduction, this workshop presents advanced techniques to help you implement, evaluate, and enhance knowledge transfer and exchange strategies.
