The Scientist Knowledge Translation Training (SKTTTM) course was developed on the premise that scientists, and increasingly, other practitioners and educators, are agents of change in creating research impact, promoting research utilization, and ensuring that research findings reach the appropriate audiences. There is a skill set surrounding KT practice, and it is these competencies that the training course was designed to impart.
The SKTT course is intended for anyone who has an interest in:
- Sharing research knowledge with (multiple) audiences beyond the traditional academic community
- Increasing the impact potential of their research
- Applying KT principles for sharing knowledge
Developed in The Learning Institute, Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada, SKTT is hosted twice a year. Each session is open to a maximum of twenty-five participants. SKTT will be offered September 13th and 14th, 2012.
