At a recent meeting, a plea was made to examine the way professional development (and, indirectly, training) is managed for knowledge and information managers. This meeting will therefore examine possible approaches to such professional development.
A year ago, NetIKX, with the cooperation of a number of other organisations in the field of knowledge and information management, ran a meeting called Connecting Knowledge Communities, at which representatives of these organisations, as well as NetIKX itself, talked about their membership, their focus and their mode of operation. The organisations were: Henley Forum for Organisational Learning & Knowledge Strategies, the Knowledge and Innovation Network (KIN), IRMS (the Information and Records Management Society), ISKO UK (the UK Chapter of the International Society for Knowledge Organization) and KIDMM (the Knowledge, Information, Data and Metadata Management online forum). This meeting is intended to take that relationship one stage further by examining an area that is likely to be of interest to all these groups. Once again, a special rate has been fixed for this meeting.
Speakers: Luke Stevens-Burt, who is Head of Business Development (Member Services) at CILIP, who will talk about CPD at CILIP and the PKSB (Professional Knowledge and Skills Base), which can be used to rate knowledge and skills levels and identify areas for improvement; Christopher Reeves and Karen Thwaites from the Department for Education, who will also talk about CPD, particularly focusing on the new Government KIM framework and how it was produced – there will be a unique opportunity to see this from the perspective of the Department for Education because Chris did a lot of the coordination to ensure consultation there and experienced the challenges that this raised.
Catherine Flutsch is Head of Knowledge Development Operations at Bird & Bird - an international law firm.
