Knowledge is a valuable resource produced by people through inquiry or experience and can be gained in many ways and contexts. It may be research or evidence produced by an academic, or expertise and know how gained by a community worker running a local program. It may be that many people over many years have built on collective knowledge in a particular industry, to develop innovative ideas, approaches or products.
There is a great deal of knowledge produced, but how aware are individuals, organisations or sectors of others’ knowledge? How well is knowledge shared, used or co-produced? Knowledge tends to exist in localised pockets, which limits its full potential and benefit. Knowledge brokering, transfer and mobilisation is a way to identify, exchange, share and co-produce knowledge across domains, utilising knowledge to its full potential and extracting its full value.
The Knowledge Brokering, Transfer and Mobilisation Training course is a two-day course developed for individuals from all professional backgrounds who undertake knowledge brokering, transfer and mobilisation activities, whether formally or informally in their work, or anybody who wishes to develop an understanding of knowledge brokering, transfer and mobilisation to apply it to their job, organisation or community.
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, transfer and mobilisation principles, models, processes and purposes.
The course also 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:
