A new publication in Educational Research outlines and examines the developing knowledge mobilization approach of the Knowledge Network for Applied Education Research (KNAER), the first large-scale government-funded initiative focused on mobilizing knowledge in the Ontario provincial education system.

Developing a Knowledge Network for Applied Education Research to Mobilise Evidence in and for Educational Practice

The purpose of this article is to analyse the developing approach towards supporting knowledge mobilisation by the KNAER provincial partners and university teams, and also the knowledge mobilisation strategies, challenges and successes of 44 KNAER knowledge mobilization projects. We used a qualitative case study approach to investigate the KNAER's approaches to developing knowledge mobilisation over four years (2010–2014), including analyzing meeting notes, knowledge mobilization plans and interim reports of the 44 KNAER projects, and feedback from KNAER project leads.
