About this Webinar

Put simply, Knowledge Translation is taking research and sharing it with a broad audience (or multiple audiences) in ways that will be meaningful to them. So, to researchers, data and statistics and trends are critically important to finding answers. To a layperson, however, just looking at a data report not be very useful. If those data are reformatted into a graphic focused on one meaningful data point, or a practical document to guide practice, it becomes more important to specific audiences.

During this webinar, participants will learn different methods of knowledge translation that Think College uses, how we identify what data gets passed to which audiences and by what means, and how to know if information is getting to the intended audience. I will also be sharing some general information about Knowledge Translation.
