Competencies and Skills for Knowledge Mobilization and Knowledge Exchange (Survey Request)

The following is a request for participation from David Phipps, RIR-York in his collaborative research project on priority competencies and skills for KMb and KE.

Two speech bubblesI am conducting a collaborative research project on priority competencies and skills for knowledge mobilization and knowledge exchange. My collaborators are Monica Batac (graduate student, Ryerson University), Julie Bayley (Coventry University) and Ed Stevens (University of Bath). Ryerson University’s Research Ethics Board has approved this study (PI: Monica Batac, supervised by Dr. Charles Davis).

I am looking for a diverse group of participants to complete the online survey on the practice of knowledge mobilization/exchange. Potential participants include knowledge mobilization researchers, knowledge brokers, intermediaries, and knowledge transfer/translation practitioners.

What you will be asked to do:

This study asks you to read and rate knowledge broker competencies based on how often you practice that skill. You will be asked to rate each of 80 competencies according to the following scale:

Crucial (practiced almost every day)
High alignment (practiced almost every week)
Medium alignment (practice monthly)
Low alignment (rarely practice)
Unrelated to my post (never practice)

The survey should take you about 30 minutes to complete.

The survey can be found at:

Your choice of whether or not to participate will not influence your future relationships
with me or any of the project collaborators and our affilitated universities.

Please feel free to forward this recruitment message to those who may like to
