Virtuous Spiral or Vicious Circle?

Creating and Distributing Innovative Knowledge within Universities

Martin Rehm, Amber Dailey-Hebert, KaterinaBohleCarbonell& Karen D. Könings

20th International EDiNEB Conference,

Milton Keynes (UK), June 2013


universities are challenged to tackle interconnected, ill-defined problems in need of innovative solutions


vs.

Top-Down Approach

Bottom-Up Approach


Bottom-Up Approach

  • make use of faculty’s tacit knowledge composed of their on-the-job experiences (e.g. Gherardi & Nicolini, 2000)

  • transforming individuals’ tacit knowledge into new explicit knowledge

     contribute to the process of (innovative) knowledge creation within organizations.


Tacit  Explicit Knowledge

&

Innovative Knowledge Communities (IKC)

Social Interaction


Main Research Question


How do educational innovators collaborate and spread their newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?


Research Model


Setting

  • Maastricht University

    • 3-year project: “Learning and Working”

      • all faculties

      • new target groups

      • innovative learning approaches


Instruments

  • Social Network Analysis

    • In- & Out-Degree Ties

      • The amount of connections sent / received

  • Knowledge Sharing Attitudes

    • Individuals’ knowledge sharing intentions (IKSI)(Bock, Zmund, Kim, & Lee, 2005)


Social Network Analysis


all ties among members


only “frequent” out-degree connections


Knowledge Sharing Attitudes


Note: Group A; N = 10 (50%); Likert scale 1 (strong disagreement) – 5 (strong agreement)


Conclusion

a first preliminary idea of how educational innovators collaborate and spread their newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives


Outlook

  • expand the scope to include a broader group of individuals from within an entire organization  Groups B & C

  • cross comparison of initiatives

    • Park University

      • 2-year project innovate faculty development
