Knowledge Management Education Forum (KMEF)

  • KMEF Webinar Session-3

The Knowledge Management Education Forum (KMEF) is an on-going, annual dialog hosted by Kent State University and George Washington University. We invite and welcome your participation and collaboration in this endeavor to identify and grow consensus on the knowledge management body of knowledge, competencies, roles and curriculum.

The goal of the KM Education Forum is to create an environment in which this consensus can evolve. It aims to bring together the current and past thought leaders in the field of knowledge management to discuss their work, and to open the dialog where others can contribute. We envision the Forum as an ongoing, annual dialog that will mirror this emerging profession.

This is the third of a weekly series of free webinars supported by Kent State University from Tuesday, March 15, through Tuesday, April 26, 2011; invited speaker presentations and a moderated discussion.

These webinars will focus on four key questions:

  • Question 1: What strategic roles and responsibilities do Knowledge Professionals play in organizations today – across all sectors of the economy?
  • Question 2: What competencies do Knowledge Professionals need to lead knowledge organizations in the 21st century?
  • Question 3: What are the core and elective elements of a knowledge management curriculum for the 21st century?
  • Question 4: How can we support these competencies in professional training, at the certificate level, at the master’s and PhD. levels?
