  • Knowledge mobilization is defined as Moving research knowledge into active service
  • Knowledge mobilization is defined as Moving research knowledge into active service
    Moving this research knowledge into active service involves moving ideas, connecting researchers and people, sharing both people and ideas, as well as searching out and making the connections between ideas and people with common interests visible and transparent.
    Examples of how these network effects translate to research includes:
    Faster transfer of information than a journal publication (blog)
    Feedback on ideas (comments and responses)
    Knowing what are others in your field working on today? (twitter)
    Real-time conversation and network exchange (twitter)
    Resource sharing (blogs)
    Notification of when new information is shared (RSS)
    Ideas, people, sharing and searching are all ways to build your knowledge transfer network.

  • PJ: So you still don’t have any followers. It would be cool if you could get important people in your network to add you. First, you should let others know you are on twitter - send out an email
    PJ: Verbally ask your colleagues, send out an email, place your twitter name on your email signature, add it to your business cards, attach it to your door, tell your colleagues, add it to your conference badge. Be visible.
