Special Session on
Knowledge Management in Academia: Innovative Teaching and Learning Practices


Murali Mohan Narasipuram,
City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Session Description

Over the years teaching and learning practices have moved from teacher-centric to student-centric and from content-based to outcome-based. More importantly achieving alignment between the academic content design, delivery and assessment while catering to the multiple individual learning styles of individual students has become the main focus of teaching and learning activity design and development. As the focus moved from teacher-centric to student-centric and to the multiple individual learning styles, the knowledge to be collected and managed has grown hyper exponentially. Instructors need to collect, organize, retrieve and use knowledge about individual students, their respective individual progression over different assessments, preferred learning styles, etc. It is a daunting task. Instructors need innovative, technology-enabled knowledge management methods, techniques and tools to achieve this objective. This session will discuss the issues involved and suggested methods, tools and techniques for effective knowledge management for innovative teaching and learning activities.

  • Researchers and academics in the domains of Knowledge Management and Education
  • Instructors seeking to achieve constructive alignment
  • Education Technologists
