Dr Tamika Heiden – Head Inspirer, Research Impact Academy

Hi, I’m Tamika Heiden, Head Inspirer and Founder.

I don’t know about you, but I became a researcher so that I could change the world! I guess I was a bit optimistic, but I really wanted to discover new things, I wanted to help people, and I wanted to make a difference somehow. These are values that have stayed with me, but I have realised that research alone, and the discovery of new evidence alone, will not make the difference that I was aiming for. I have realised the need to work in new ways to ensure that the findings of research get to the people who need to know about it, or who need to use it. Importantly, I have found and learnt proven methods, models and frameworks that can help.

    “If I had done this KT Australia workshop with Tamika before embarking on my project, I would have been more successful in actually conducting knowledge translation in its true form – from dissemination to implementation in practice.”
