Description


Are you a researcher looking to learn more about knowledge translation and how it can apply to your work? Join us for a morning of workshops addressing various knowledge translation topics.

This half-day session will be held on April 5, 2017 from 8:30 am – 12 pm, Room 474, Chown Building, 753 McDermot Ave.

Agenda will include:

KT 101 & your choice of two of the following:

  1. Integrating KT into Your Research Program - Learn how to apply KT to your own research program through examples of existing KT research questions and methodologies. This workshop is most appropriate for independent investigators.
  2. Twitter for Absolute Beginners - You’re busy. You’re aware of Twitter, but don’t know much about Tweeting, or how it could possibly be useful to researchers. In this interactive lecture, you’ll gain a solid foundation of the Twitter basics, learn how to measure your impact on social media, and most importantly, learn how to make this KT tool an asset in your work. We encourage only those who have little or no experience with Twitter to signup. 
  3. How to Write an Op-Ed to Promote Your Research - This workshop will help researchers learn the importance of mainstream news media as a KT tool, take complex population health, equity and prevention concepts that are important to health research and communicate them using simple, values-driven and emotionally compelling statements for mainstream media, new media and social media and begin to write a draft outline of an OpEd based on their work, using the key communications skills taught in this workshop.
  4. The Process of Developing a KT Tool: A Hands-On Workshop - too often, we approach a problem with a solution in mind (e.g. we need a brochure). This workshop, developed by Stanford's d.school will challenge you to approach a problem like a KT specialist. Through hands-on activities facilitated by CHI, you'll learn the value of engaging end users from the onset, build confidence in how to gather (and implement) actionable feedback on your work, and ultimately, improve the viability of your next KT tool. 

Please register below for the overall workshop and someone from our platform will follow up to determine your session choices   - this workshop is free but space is limited. Registration deadline is March 24th, 2017. For more information email cleggett@hsc.mb.ca.
