Abstract


Understanding of the driving factors to knowledge sharing activities in the Technical Education Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Institutions environment are required since these activities often experience failure as many instructors prefer to seek knowledge rather than to be the contributors. This study was conducted to identify contributing factors to knowledge sharing activities among instructors in TVET institutions. The study employs qualitative method using semi-structured interviews and content analysis. The sampling of the study was snowball sampling involving four TVET instructors. The findings identified four non-technical factors; i.e. organizational factors, individual factors, content factors and collaborative factors while one factor represents a technical approach i.e. technology that all contribute to knowledge sharing. How the identified factors may contribute to TVET institutions towards the development of knowledge sharing repositories to promote knowledge sharing among instructors were discussed.
