The Knowledge Brokering Training course is a two-day course developed for individuals who are in roles where they undertake knowledge brokering activities, work for organisations which have knowledge brokering roles or are individuals who wish to utilise knowledge brokering in their workplace. The course uses a mix of case studies, theoretical literature and practical examples and experience drawn from a range of contexts, sectors and disciplines to explore the scope and variety of knowledge brokering forms, processes and purposes.
This course has a practical element weaved throughout the two days, which will be delivered in two forms. Firstly, with each session participants will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned to their specific work context and secondly, the course provides an opportunity for participants to build their own knowledge network, to share insights and perspectives. At the end of the course participants will be able to:
-Explain the role and scope of knowledge brokering
-Identify current knowledge brokering activities and practices and how they can be further supported or expanded
-Assess the strengths and limitations of modes of communication relevant to various contexts
-Identify new networks, pathways and activities to facilitate knowledge brokering
-Understand and identify internal and external contexts which affect knowledge transfer and knowledge sharing and use
-Understand the link between knowledge brokering and innovation
-Have an understanding of theoretical perspectives which inform all aspects of knowledge brokering.
