Knowledge Spirals in Higher Education Teaching Innovation.
A R&I&i process for a knowledge management system development is presented. It transforms different
institutions experiences into organisational knowledge applicable to an entire sector, the higher education
one specifically. The knowledge management system allows classifying, organising, distributing and
facilitating the application of the knowledge generated by the faculty.
A study, with more than 1000 system users, reflects that the system helps to the faculty in the way they perform educational innovation activities. The supported model integrates both Nonaka’s epistemological and ontological spirals. This allows definingontologies and used them in order to transform the individual knowledge into organisational one.
The knowledge management system encapsulates complex logic expressions and ontologies management,
making easy for the users obtaining successful results that may organise in their own way, becoming a
powerful knowledge management process that combines epistemological and ontological knowledge spirals to convert individual experiences in educational innovation into organisational knowledge in the higher education sector.
