Welcome to KM@KSU, a place where Kent State University will help the knowledge management community discuss and present current topics. Knowledge management is a dynamic field, and students and professionals must continue their education to develop and adapt new skills.

Kent State University defines knowledge management broadly to include: knowledge strategy and leadership, intellectual capital, knowledge economies, the economics of information, innovation, collaboration and communities, communication and culture, knowledge technologies, knowledge architecture, knowledge asset management, organizational learning, knowledge elicitation and knowledge representation.

Knowledge management is a practical discipline, and knowledge managers tend to only come together to talk about broad areas of KM at conferences or talk in small groups at our economic sectors or within our own communities. The purpose of these weekly KM@KSU webinars is to broaden the dialog on topics related to knowledge management.

Any topic, whether practical or theoretical, that touches on any of these basic areas is welcome in the webinars. The KM@KSU series is launching with some invited presenters to get the series started. Hopefully, the series will continue indefinitely through broad participation from the knowledge management community. A webinar will be offered anytime there is an interest.

If you'd like to submit an idea for a webinar, please go to the Submit Presentations Request and submit your own topic or recommend a speaker or a topic you'd like to hear about. We strongly encourage students to present their work through this series. We will do our best to accommodate suggestions.

Webinars will be offered online Thursdays at noon and will typically run until 1:30 p.m. If you can't join the live presentation, the webinars will be recorded and archived for later listening. You do not need to be a member of a community, but if you would like to join in the discussion you just need to take the link "Join" in the upper right part of each page of this wiki. There is no cost other than your own time to sign on and participate. The listserv that supports this group can be accessed at https://listserv.kent.edu/cgi-bin/wa.exe?A0=kmatksu

This site is also intended to be an open community whose content will be governed under Creative Commons. KM@KSU aims to follow knowledge management ideas and share what we've learned so we can advance the profession.

We look forward to hearing your suggestions for presentations and look forward to growing the community across sectors, across different types of organizations and across the globe.
