An experiential approach to teaching Knowledge Management

Abstract: This paper presents a guideline for developing student activities designed to enable the discovery and application of students’ knowledge, as they seek to learn the discipline of Knowledge Management (KM). We describe a student group project, which was a required course assignment, and how this activity helped the students discover and apply new knowledge about KM systems development and implementation. With further analysis of three project cases, we show the most important outcome of the project was the demonstration of how to apply the principles of KM to an organisational environment, and thus it served as a practical learning experience for students to understand the various issues surrounding KM systems implementation.
