The Real KT

 

To translate what is believed to be known

Into another version of the same or similar

Knowledge

 

To swap perspectives

Adopt different viewpoints that may view the information from different points

With a different focus for a different person

Is not the same for one as for another

 

But translating requires

Knowing

What is important to one

Is not the same for one as for another

 

Ask

what do you need?

Listen

this is what may not work

Educate

this is how research works

Collaborate

let’s do this together

Share

here is what we’ve discovered so far

Update

we’re finishing things up now

Review

what could we do better?

 

To translate does not mean

To start at the end

Disseminate what we think we learned

It means to start at the beginning

To translate our understanding of what needs to be known for new knowledge to be useful

 

For knowledge to be used

 

We must translate our knowledge of how to do research

Effectively
