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

Chad Gaffield (President Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council SSHRC) Speaking at Annual Conference of Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences

Re-Imagining Scholarship In The Digital Age

David Phipps, Director of Research Services and Knowledge Exchange at York University in Toronto,  makes a cameo asking a question after Chad’s presentation. Chad Gaffield publically recognized David as a leader in Canada helping SSHRC think through knowledge mobilization in all its dimensions, and creating a knowledge mobilization Community of Practice.

David is becoming more recognized nationally and internationally as a Knowledge Broker and actively involved in Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) as a Knowledge Mobilizer at ResearchImpact – Canada’s Knowledge Mobilization Network.

Congratulations for the public acknowledgement David!

And thanks to Chad Gaffield for an terrific presentation!

    Thanks for the shout out KMbeing. My comment to Chad was about the relative failure of interdiscipinarity to bridge the disciplinary silos of our researchers. The closest thing we saw to this was the KT/KB workshop at CDN Science Policy Conference in October 2010 (http://researchimpact.wordpress.com/2010/10/28/reflections-from-a-knowledge-broker-at-ktkb2010-part-i/) but this wasn’t focused on researchers having a KT/KB mandate but on the connectors, the intermediaries between research and (mainly) policy. I’d be interested in other ideas how to bridge the gap between those bridging the gaps.
