It always surprises me at times what I stumble over when Googling.

I was looking for stories and the like that people have published over the years about my Knowledge Cafés - you will find a few stories here but this one surprised me - Exploring the Gurteen Knowledge Café approach as an innovative teaching for learning strategy with first-year engineering students.

The researcher and author Prof. Deonarain Brijlall of the Durban University of Technology in South Africa had not told me about it :-)

Anyway, thanks to Google for helping me to find it and to Prof. Brijlal for adapting the Café as a teaching method for his students.

This style of teaching is one of the major untapped applications of the Café and the philosophy has much in common with flipped teaching.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
