A discussion paper prepared at the request of the Canadian Council on Learning and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council - Thinking About Knowledge Mobilization (2008)

This document is a revised version of a discussion paper prepared for a seminar in May 2008, jointly sponsored by the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SHRC).

Interest in knowledge mobilization (KM) has been growing rapidly, and understanding of the issue is deepening, the author notes. However, important conceptual questions remain; the empirical basis for answering many of these questions is still very thin; research methods to provide better evidence also need considerable development; and the overall infrastructure in support of KM related to learning remains quite weak.

Still, those interested in the topic are at least in the position to be able to ask better questions, and to find better ways of gathering evidence about them, the author says.

This review suggests that action for knowledge mobilization is needed on several fronts simultaneously in order to improve understanding of, and base of evidence on, the subject, and to strengthen and evaluate KM activities in a range of organizations.
