Deeble Institute Research Translation and Implementation Short Course

Do you want policy makers and practitioners to understand, take notice of and implement your research?

Learn to write for policymakers, practitioners and consumers, convey complex ideas to non-academic audiences, and communicate with new and traditional media. Learn how to communicate your research to have a lasting impact on policy development and to generate evidence-based outcomes.

This three-day course will assist academic researchers in making their work more accessible and useful to policymakers. Course sessions will cover a range of topics including:

  • Why research translation is becoming more important for academic researchers, and the various ways it can be done;
  • The realities of the policymaking process and the environment in which policymakers work;
  • Engaging effectively with the media and non-academic audiences, and;
  • Identifying research that is suitable for implementation.

Combining theory with a strong practical focus, participants will have the opportunity apply the principles presented in practical sessions that will include translating a piece of their own research into a policy backgrounder and developing an implementation plan for an established piece of evidence.
