Abstract

Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions are responsible for providing Human Resources particularly skilled and knowledgeable workers. In order to improve the quality of graduates in the technical field, the knowledge of TVET institution instructors should be strengthened from time-to- time. Knowledge sharing among TVET instructors can help them update their current knowledge. Information Technology enables TVET instructors to search for and share new knowledge more efficiently and quickly. They will also be able access a wider range of information. However, these knowledge- sharing activities often result in failure because most people prefer to seek knowledge rather than be its contributors. Therefore, this study is conducted to identify factors that influence knowledge-sharing activities among TVET instructors. A Qualitative method involving a semi-structured interview was conducted for this study. The Snowball Sampling method was chosen with four instructors and two experts as the respondents. Data analysis was performed using content analysis. This study identified the factors affecting knowledge-sharing activities via two main approaches: the non-technical approach, which consists of organizational, individual, content, and cooperation factors and the technical approach, which consists of just one factor i.e. technology. The factors identified are expected to help TVET institutions develop a knowledge-sharing repository that will encourage the sharing of knowledge among their instructors.
