Blog Exchange Knowledge (7/8/12)

Today I go through my classmate blogs for knowledge exchange, and I'm able to comment on Mehdiah, Gharhawi, Durratul Ain, Attika and Bashir's blogs. 

I also need to update my blog for them to comment on it :) 
Thanks for everyone who go through my blog and make comment on it.

Class Activities

We have a very enjoyable and fun class activities in understanding about Tacit and Explicit knowledge. The activities are divided into two - tacit and explicit activities. Tacit activity is done by female group while explicit activity is done by male group.

Tacit knowledge : Learn how to wrap nasi lemak.
Female group is teaching male group step-by-step how to wrap nasi lemak. 

Explicit knowledge : Male group introduce sign games to explain explicit knowledge

Visit to Istana Negara, Kuala Lumpur

On July 20th, 2012 my classmate is having trip to Istana Negara, Kuala Lumpur to learn about tacit and explicit knowledge. This trip was organized by our beloved lecturer Madam Azmawati. Unfortunately I'm not able to participate in the trip due to my health condition but I get update about the trip from my friends. Below are the picture of the trip and the report my friends get from the trip.

More pictures on Tieka's blog -

Tacit Knowledge 
- It is considered valuable knowledge as it may provide context for experiences, ideas, people and places.
- In this trip my friends get tacit knowledge through their experience in the Istana Negara. They can see the building, touch the interior, and talk to the people there to get information about Raja-raja Melayu.  

Explicit Knowledge 
- Easy to capture and store in databases and documents (e.g. policies, procedures, and manuals).
- In the trip, all visitors are provided with the handbook, manuscripts, videos and written information  about administration of Raja-raja Melayu.  

Transfer of Knowledge : Far Transfer

Nancy Dixon distinguishes between 5 kinds of Knowledge Transfer:
  • Serial Transfer
  • Near Transfer
  • Far Transfer
  • Strategic Transfer
  • Expert Transfer


Far Transfer from Hafidzah Aziz

Far Transfer
  • Far transfer tasks involve skills and knowledge being applied in situations that change.
  • Far transfer tasks require instruction where learners are trained to adapt guidelines to changing situations or environments. 
  • Far Transfer is a tacit knowledge a team has gained doing nonroutine tasks is transferred to other teams doing similar work in other parts of the organization.

Cultural Enabler in Far Transfer
  • The set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution or organization. 
  • If it is a cultural or norms of the organization to share the knowledge and experience from senior to junior and to train from upper level to bottom line, that skills and knowledge will expand and new innovation will be able to develop.
