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

The Value Of Sharing Your Own Knowledge

Sometimes in life we spend so much time “looking” for the answers from others that we forget the value of sharing our own knowledge. Take this moment to share your own knowledge to make the world a better place.  You might be surprised how your own knowledge and being open to other people’s knowledge can make a difference.

    Great point, KMbeing.
    In my experience as an emerging researcher, years back, I diminished my experience and research questions from a practitioners’ perspective. Yet this experience was valued and my questions were significant in the eyes of ‘experts’. I don’t know if I would classify it as a broad continuum or spectrum, it is simply that there are diverse forms of knowledge. And while some tend to be more valued than others at times, each is important and significant in its own right.

    Thanks, Michael

    Thanks for your comment Michael. Your perspective on holding back your own knowledge as a devaluation of your own knowledge is a great example of circumstances when we hesitate to speak up because we think only the “professionals” have the “right” knowledge to pay attention to. When we also contribute our own knowledge – even to the “professionals” – there can be added value and perspectives not thought about before, which can then lead to better practice and new knowledge in the future.
