Doing KTE

Click on the items in the diagram below to learn more about them.

This is one Canadian definition of Knowledge, Transfer and Exchange (KTE). There are many guides for KTE depending on goals and settings (e.g. nonprofit). This is how we did KTE for our event and we hope you can get some tips from our example:

  1. We collected two days of presentations at the 2018, 4th International Forum: Advancing Research, Policy and Practice for Health Aging. We collected websites and links related to the speakers as well as manuscripts and grey literature (e.g., brochures).
  2. We synthesized the main ideas, eliminated repetition, and curated the presentations by clustering them into major themes.
  3. Working with a graphic designer, we designed icons for the main themes
  4. In the diagram below, we included short, plain language blurbs with key points, and hyperlinked them to the authors, main ideas, articles, videos and project website when available and without cramming the page (hyperlinks can get broken or pages taken off the air)
  5. You can do it too!
