Have you ever wondering what exactly knowledge translation is? How it works? Who is involved? How to capture and report on it? The National Capital Chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society is pleased to share an opportunity with you to learn more about these exciting dimensions, and in particular, some key concepts for performance measurement and evaluation. Participants will gain a better understanding of knowledge uptake and utilization concepts and measurement practices, practical tools in performance measurement, and be able to identify the key principles for knowledge uptake, use and transfer measurement going forward.

This event will provide participants with a background on evaluating knowledge translation by:

  • Reviewing the history and current state of measurement of knowledge uptake, use,‎ and transfer (KUUT);
  • Showcasing a knowledge uptake and utilization (KUU)‎ tool first demonstrated by Skinner in 2007 and applied and adjusted over the past decade;
  • Showing a recent application of an adapted version of the KUU tool, and thoughts about evaluating knowledge translation (guest presentation by Marla Steinberg); and
  • Sharing current work in progress to evaluate research impact and how research informs policy (guest presentation by Sarah Viehbeck, CIHR).

Additionally, participants will be ‎invited to join an online community of interest with regard to measurement of KUU with opportunity to be involved in shaping the development of tools and to continue this work moving forward.
