Teaching Knowledge Management: Investigating Scenarios and Applying Technologies
Abstract: This paper introduces the aims of a single optional module in Knowledge Management which is part of an MSc Information Systems programme. The content of the module is enhanced by material generated from collaboration in applied research projects and by enquiry in related modules. The paper argues in favour of participatory learning as a means of engaging students with issues in the field, and of developing stimulating case-study materials. The combination of student involvement in real-world environments and the application of emerging technologies provides opportunities to extend applied research and learning initiatives.
