Dr Tamika Heiden – Head Visionary, Research Impact Academy
Hi, I’m Tamika Heiden, Head Visionary 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.
Words from our raving fans!
“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.”
I went from being a social media non-user to an active participant in just one day!
With a recent introduction to the concepts of KT I was excited and hopeful to be referred to Knowledge Translation Australia. I found Tamika to be a great ambassadress for the place and processes of KT in research and practice. I look forward to contributing to the ‘closing of the loop’
Thanks Tamika. I truly enjoyed this workshop and have made some relevant decisions for our research projects based on the content and ideas presented.
With the different parties involved, identifying and agreeing on a system was a challenge for us. We found that with Tamika’s assistance as a facilitator, a clear direction emerged, by questioning us and encouraging discussion therefore providing a pathway to an agreement on a system.
