How Think College "does" Knowledge TranslationShow detailsPut 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.
