APPLICATIONS DUE FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 2017!

KTPC is a five-day professional development initiative for knowledge translation (KT) professionals (ie. knowledge brokers, KT specialists, KT managers, and the like). Participation in this week-long intensive requires some background in KT. The curriculum focuses on the core competencies of KT work in Canada, as identified by a survey of KT practitioners. These competencies include KT Planning, KT Theories and Frameworks, Implementation and Evaluation, among others. The course includes a balance of theory and practical application and we invite active participation by employers/mentors to help build organizational culture for KT. For more information, please refer to the KTPC Course Brochure.
