Tonight in San Francisco
Wednesday, June 15, 2005
The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME) meets this evening in San Francisco:

"Sharing What We Know: The Creation and Use of Educational Materials in the Digital Age"

Wednesday, June 15, 2005
4:00pm – 6:00pm
(Reception 6:00pm – 7:00pm)

Location: WestEd
730 Harrison Street, San Francisco

* Do faculty at your school or institution create educational materials for their classes and post them online?
* Do they worry about how this content will be used by others and the loss of their intellectual property?
* Are you looking to strike a balance between encouraging the distribution of knowledge while retaining rights and privileges?

Please join us for a thought-provoking discussion with the Neeru Paharia, Executive Director of Creative Commons (http://creativecommons.org/), who will discuss an innovative approach to creating, sharing, and retaining rights to online educational content.

I don't know this group. John Mahoney recommends it highly. It sounds right up my alley:

ISKME makes available its research and expertise to help education institutions transform knowledge capital into effective practice through the innovation and development of knowledge management practices. ISKME advises institutional leaders and education organizations in the development of:

  • Strategic initiatives related to knowledge management and information systems
  • Policies and practices to increase organizational capacity for information use
  • Developing organizational infrastructure that supports a culture of evidence

    How is ISKME’s research applied to educational institutions?

    ISKME facilitates research that enables education institutions to take a closer look at their organizational practices and strategies around the use and sharing of data and information; to examine how administrators, faculty, and staff interact with data and information in making day-to-day decisions and long-term planning; and to understand the processes and technology required for building an infrastructure that maximizes information and knowledge across all levels of the organization.

    ISKME conducts research in several areas having to do with the use of data, information, and knowledge in educational organizations. These include:

  • The impact of accountability mandates on institutional information practices
  • The assessment of internal information practices that impact student learning outcomes
  • The impact of information culture and politics on the use of information for decision-making
  • The identification of patterns of information use and information flow
  • The study of knowledge management practices in educational organizations

Check out this storytelling approach. The content is visually mapped down the left column. It's really a hyperstory. Also, articles.
