Knowledge Mobilization is a relatively new term being used in Canada to describe Knowledge Brokering and Transfer activities at an Institutional Level. I’ve attached a presentation on Research Administration as Brokering; this was done in conjunction with “Research Impact”, Canada’s institutional champion for Knowledge Mobilization via Universities.
In the presentation I try to contextualize Research Administration via Knowledge Management. By taking up Knowledge Management practices, the RA can re-interpret their work as Brokering Knowledge (which fits the paradigm of “Knowledge Mobilization”, linking stakeholders to other people or information)
Please do attach or disseminate any presentations you have on Brokering to our group for feedback and discussion.
