Purposive and situated attempts and activities of a learning community (or learning communities) to gain insight into knowledge objects by means of knowledge artefacts.

Figure 1. Elements of a knowledge creation process

‘Knowledge creation processes’ is a term closely related to ‘trialogical learning’ where trialogical learning (and trialogues) refer to a specific type of knowledge creation processes, where the emphasis is put on the collaborative, iterative efforts of creating artefacts and/or knowledge practices and processes together, to mediate the process. Knowledge creation processes refer to a broader class of purposive and situated activities of a learning community (see object-orientedness) aiming at developing knowledge objects.

‘Knowledge creation processes’ are also related to knowledge creation metaphor of learning (KCM). KCM being a claim that there are modern theories of learning and human cognition which have similarities when it comes to emphasizing collaborative knowledge creation and related processes.
