Knowledge Translation: The multi-dimensional, active process of ensuring that new knowledge gained through the course of research ultimately improves the lives of people with disabilities, and furthers their participation in society (NIDRR, 2005).

Effective and well-planned training is central to translating and applying new knowledge from research to practice to use within the VR system. The RRTC-EBP-VR, in collaboration with key partners, will apply knowledge translation (KT) concepts and recommendations to improve VR service outcomes to improve the effectiveness of service and program practices within state and federal VR agencies.

We are developing four primary training projects:

  1. Training Project 1: Internet-based training programs that are accessible, cost-effective, and on-demand. Find out more…
  2. Training Project 2: In-person training events provided in collaboration with national organizations such as the council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation (CSAVR), Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA), National Council on Rehabilitation Education (NCRE), and Technical Assistance and Continuing Education Centers (TACE).  Find out more…
  3. Training Project 3: A two-day State-of-the-Science conference will be held in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area in the Spring of 2014. Find out more…
  4. Training Project 4: Individualized, face-to-face and online training programs specifically designed to serve state VR programs.
