Description Knowledge translation looks at how knowledge created through research can be applied in real world contexts. It takes research from the theoretical stage (i.e. "that's interesting, but so what?") to the applied stage where it can be used to create real impact. In this unit, we explore the two main processes of knowledge translation - communication and implementation. This is a highly collaborative unit where the interdisciplinary group meets to engage in general theoretical discussion and practice various knowledge translation activities based on our various fields of research.
