Resumen

Las Comunidades de Práctica (COPs) transdisciplinares reúnen a miembros con diferente cosmovisión y repertorio teórico. Son contextos con un gran potencial para creación de conocimiento a partir de la colaboración entre personas con distintas perspectivas de la realidad. Sin embargo, la transdiciplinariedad supone un reto en el desarrollo de la comunidad y en los mecanismos de participación y colaboración. Por ello, el estudio de los factores que intervienen en estos procesos es especialmente relevante en este tipo de comunidades. Esta investigación se centra en la influencia de la confianza en el intercambio de conocimiento en una COP tecnológico-educativa surgida en el seno de un grupo de investigación de una universidad española. En el estudio se ha utilizado un modelo mixto materializado en un diseño convergente paralelo. Los resultados avalan que la confianza basada en la benevolencia, integridad y competencia de los miembros de la COP influyen positivamente en el intercambio de conocimiento en una COP transdisciplinar. Además, los hallazgos revelan la importancia de la relación personal y de la satisfacción con los intercambios pasados para sustentar la confianza en los miembros de cara al intercambio de conocimiento en el futuro. La convergencia de datos cualitativos y cuantitativos se ha revelado como una aproximación adecuada para mejorar la comprensión de fenómenos y contextos complejos y multidisciplinares.
