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

Promoting Knowledge Mobilization

KMb

Knowledge requires action to be useful. Knowledge can be shared for benefit or harm. When knowledge is shared for benefit it becomes useful. Active and engaging knowledge-sharing for social benefit is more likely to create greater understanding between various sectors of society. Greater understanding leads to a more peaceful and civil society.

Sharing knowledge and being open to the knowledge of others and listening to the knowledge of others as well as sharing your own knowledge on a regular basis is more likely to ensure that common ground can be found between differing views of knowledge – because the world is full of differing views. This isn’t a bad thing. It’s just that we need to try to continue to find common ground. Knowledge and practice develop together.

Strategies for sharing knowledge may differ. Knowledge may be shared more formally or informally through written documents, online or in person with face-to-face engagement. Knowledge sharing can be more academic or artistic. Knowledge sharing can take place through research presentations or storytelling. All of these types of knowledge sharing benefit from and contribute to greater networks and connections through knowledge mobilization.

Everyone has an opportunity to be a knowledge mobilizer to develop greater trust within society, openness and understanding. This action is includes ongoing feedback, deeper conversations and constant learning. When we take action to align our knowledge and work together through knowledge mobilization the more we make the world a better place.
