Abstract

Abstract: In 2001 Kent State University established a graduate level program that granted a Master of Science degree in Information Architecture and Knowledge Management. The Knowledge Management concentration was a cornerstone of that degree program. The Knowledge Management concentration has sustained and thrived over the past ten years, though the path has not always been easy or clear. This case study describes the challenges encountered and the solutions developed over the past ten years. The case study discusses nineteen challenges and their solutions, in hopes that other institutions may benefit from Kent State University’s lessons learned and successes. The case study highlights issues that arise as an academic program matures, including: curriculum development and design, administrative support and alignment, faculty credentials and credibility, and research support.

 

Keywords: knowledge management education, knowledge management curriculum, course design, experiential learning, student learning models, knowledge management faculty credentials

Abstract

The paper identifies KM competencies by examining the unrecognized indications that KM concepts independently exist in educational systems. It suggests introducing KM education and training in primary, secondary, and vocational schools and a shift to specifying educational objectives based on competencies rather than subject. Qualitative approaches were used to identify omissions and needed clarifications in educational objectives by examining educational objectives, models, and guidelines. This paper “discovers” unnamed KM in today’s educational systems. It provides definitions for competency terms for educational guidelines and identifies the foundational skills needed from both economic and social perspectives. It reveals long‑standing definitional shortfalls that can be rectified by defining appropriate terms. It concludes by recommending a transition to competency‑based concepts as guidelines. Competency terms for KM, all three of Bloom’s domains, and the skills of making and doing, are required. Socialization needs for acculturation require amplification. KM education and training should be introduced in primary, secondary, and vocational schools to improve employability. Reviewed policy guidelines are limited to US and UK sources; other sources might provide additional insight. Socialization and science are not developed in competency word format. KM is discovered to be justified by educational guidelines, current curriculums, and unstated needs in educational objectives; justification does not rely on traditional KM sources. KM competencies complement other basic competencies in acculturating and preparing people for the modern workforce. Recognizing KM competencies as foundational competencies indicates that knowledge and KM topics should be included in primary, secondary, and vocational education and training. Collectively, the suggested terms more clearly identify competencies needed in a knowledge society and provide an alternative as guidelines to the subject approach currently used.
