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

20th International EDiNEB Conference,

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


vs. ill-defined problems in need of innovative solutions

Top-Down Approach

Bottom-Up Approach


Bottom up approach
Bottom-Up Approach ill-defined problems in need of innovative solutions

  • 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.

Main research question

Main Research Question ill-defined problems in need of innovative solutions


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


Research model
Research Model newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?


Setting
Setting newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?

  • Maastricht University

    • 3-year project: “Learning and Working”

      • all faculties

      • new target groups

      • innovative learning approaches


Instruments
Instruments newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?

  • 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

Social Network Analysis newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?


all ties among members newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?


only “frequent” out-degree connections newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?


Knowledge sharing attitudes

Knowledge Sharing Attitudes newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?


Note newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives? : Group A; N = 10 (50%); Likert scale 1 (strong disagreement) – 5 (strong agreement)


Conclusion
Conclusion newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?

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


Outlook
Outlook newly gained knowledge throughout an organization in “bottom-up” initiatives?

  • 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
