Knowledge Mobilization (KMb): Multiple Contributions & Multi-Production Of New Knowledge

Tweet a Mobilizer Event

Want to see how social media – especially microblogging on Twitter can be used to create a knowledge forum? I have been an “early-adoptor” of Twitter (as the online lingo says) and recognize microblogging as a valuable social media tool for Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) beyond the “what are you doing?” stage.

For all of my blog readers, if you’re interested in finding out more about Knowledge Mobilization and Knowledge Brokers IN REAL TIME…

Why not join me at the upcoming Tweet a Mobilizer event hosted by ResearchImpact and the Knowledge Mobilization Unit at York University.

It’s a great and easy-to-use way of connecting with others in the KMb community, and (as a side benefit) gain knowledge about how to use Twitter as a more effective social media tool.
