KTDRR’s 2020 Virtual Knowledge Translation Conference

Our 2020 theme is “Social Media Strategies for Knowledge Translation.” Presenters will address key questions pertinent to any researcher or product developer: How can social media help me understand what people need? or want to know from my work? How can it be used as a tool to involve individuals and organizations as I plan a project and get it up and running? The conference will also include discussions of using social media to recruit research participants and ensure ongoing stakeholder engagement. Throughout the conference, careful attention will be paid to making sure these social media strategies are accessible to people with disabilities.

Participants will be able to view and ask questions through the event’s virtual conference platform. #KTDRR20 will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 26, 28 and 30, 2020.

  • Monday, October 26, 2020: “Start with the end in mind: Using social media to design outcomes”
  • Wednesday, October 28, 2020: “Meet them where they’re at: Using social media for subject recruitment and stakeholder engagement”
  • Friday, October 30, 2020: “Making a difference with social media”
