Association of Knowledge Work ‘Star-Series’: Knowledge Management in Academia


  • KM in academic programs;
  • How the academic context influences the KM that is taught;
  • What / How should it be taught;
  • KM applied to academia (physician heal thyself);
  • Certification;

How is knowledge management taught at the university? When KM started moving up the awareness charts of academic publications in the 1990s, it started to be a topic of academic instruction. Since then, the topic has come in and out of favor in various academic programs around the world. There are many current programs in North America, and I’m familiar with programs in Australia and Singapore.
