Attending a national conference would be an example of acquiring knowledge.> • generating knowledge <Generating knowledge is the creation of new knowledge by changing and evolving knowledge rather than presenting synthesized information.> • sharing wisdom <Wisdom is knowledge applied in a practical way, but may or may not be based on data; while research would be based on data.
