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

The Dynamic Process Of Knowledge

Knowledge of the past can be helpful, but knowledge is a dynamic process of change – as we change (and of course we do over our lifetime) knowledge changes – every moment into the future.  We never know what’s around the corner. We never know when our own life will end. So, if I want to use my own knowledge in this life for good, it must resonate with feeling and integrity and value. But that value isn’t just for myself. Knowledge value comes from sharing knowledge for the benefit of others, and there’s only one way I can create knowledge value – by sharing my own knowledge and being open to new and diverse knowledge in the present.

I don’t want to live a life in which everything I do is automatic without thinking, questioning, wanting to know why and wanting to know more.  One of the things I love about the Internet and social media is being able to follow links to other links. I love connecting on Twitter to see and link to knowledge others have posted, or leaving comments and receiving comments on blogs – and always learning something new from someone else who has shared their experiences and their knowledge.  I never know where it might take me. We are fortunate to now live in a networked world with the ability to connect with diverse knowledge from around the world. What an amazing opportunity for knowledge growth and social benefit.

There’s always room for learning or changing our minds or ideas in the present moment, for the dynamic knowledge process is always changing our destination in life.  Our life journey is based on new knowledge and new ideas that we learn along the way.  Our knowledge in this moment is determined by our connecting with the knowledge of others.

If we can see each moment as an opportunity for knowledge connections we keep building upon our knowledge to make things better in our future.  If we make the choice to use knowledge in this life for good – especially through the process of knowledge mobilization (KMb) – new knowledge is developed for the benefit of all the people who live on this planet.
