My colleagues are organising a workshop “Bridging the gap between research and practice of Communities of Practice“ during C&T Conference (19 September, Amsterdam). The plan is to bring together presentations of a researcher and a practitioner for each topic, so there are opportunities to contrast their approaches and discuss them. The topics are:
- Communities in a R&D environment
- Communities of commercial employees (btw on this topic - Knowledge management for front-line staff by James Robertson)
- Communities and learning
These are some of the challenges around communities in corporate KM context and the last one is about one of my KM&learning interest. Hope to be there, but not 100% sure yet.
- workshop announcement at KnowledgeBoard (you can add comments there)
- workshop details at C&T web-site and registration form (these are deep links without navigation, if you want proper menus start from C&T Conference site and look for Workshop G)
This looksl ike it will be a good workshop, if you are going to be in that area, check it out.
