The purpose of "KM in Education" is to examine the role of KM in the drive
for fundamental improvements of the education and learning process. This
is the first event of its kind to identify knowledge management
strategies, tools, and technologies applicable to education communities,
including K-16, graduate, enterprise, institutional and government.


Faced with and increase in the internal and external demands for
accountability and assessment, educational institutions are increasingly
turning to KM strategies to improve processes and outcomes. Business and
education communities are converging to meet the needs of the education
market and subsequently are sparking KM innovations across sectors,
constituent groups, and enterprises.

This KM in Education Summit will cover KM developments in learning and
instruction, assessment and quality standards, administration and
management, and strategic planning and organizational effectiveness. You
will hear from educators as well as enterprise leaders who are leading KM
initiatives across sectors. Through current research and case studies,
these researchers and practioners will share insights that address the
connection between KM, education, and learning; the intersection between
individual learning outcomes and institutional performance; barriers of KM
implementation in education and learning; and the ways in which
knowledge-based organizations contribute to the education process.

What you will learn:

The meeting is designed to leverage the background of its participants in
order to explore and define the role of KM in education. You will learn
about recent research and practice that impact a broad range of
educational contexts. Subsequent panels and interactive sessions are
tailored to the participants' interests for exploring KM strategies and
techniques that can help you overcome your organization's challenges.

Enterprise participants will have opportunities to dialogue with education
and other business leaders about the challenges and opportunities in
