Project Description

The qualitative analytical study titled "Inconsistency in Knowledge Mobilization Theory: Building a More Reciprocal Relationship" aims to scrutinize the existing disparities and inconsistencies within the theoretical frameworks of knowledge mobilization (KM). The study employs a qualitative methodology to delve into the complexities and nuances of KM theories, highlighting where these frameworks fall short in fostering a truly reciprocal exchange of knowledge between researchers and practitioners. This investigation is grounded in an extensive review of literature across various disciplines that contribute to KM theory, including education, healthcare, and organizational studies. Through thematic analysis of qualitative data—gathered from interviews, case studies, and critical reflections—the study identifies key areas where current KM models promote a unidirectional flow of knowledge, typically from academia to practice, without adequately valuing or integrating the experiential knowledge from professional fields back into academic research. The core argument of the study revolves around the necessity for a more egalitarian and reciprocal relationship in knowledge exchange. It suggests that for KM to be truly effective, it must move beyond the traditional hierarchy of knowledge production. This requires the development of new models that not only facilitate the transfer of knowledge from research to application but also ensure that practical insights and experiences from professionals can inform and enrich academic research. The study proposes a conceptual framework for a more reciprocal KM model, advocating for mechanisms that support mutual learning, co-creation of knowledge, and the blurring of boundaries between researchers and practitioners. Such mechanisms include collaborative research projects, participatory action research, and integrated knowledge translation strategies that involve stakeholders throughout the research process. In conclusion, "Inconsistency in Knowledge Mobilization Theory: Building a More Reciprocal Relationship" contributes to the ongoing discourse on improving the effectiveness of KM by challenging existing paradigms and advocating for a more inclusive and cooperative approach. The findings and propositions outlined in this study hold significant implications for both theoretical development and practical application in the field of knowledge mobilization.
