EmployID celebrates 10 years anniversary of knowledge maturing model with special track at I-KNOW 2015
Ronald Maier and Andreas Schmidt together with Christine Kunzmann organized the special track Social Knowledge Management at I-KNOW 2015. With the advent of social media, knowledge management had to rethink its conceptual foundations on how knowledge develops on a collective level.
Andreas Schmidt opened the session with a look back on how the field has evolved. Ten years ago, at I-KNOW 2005, the very first version of the knowledge maturing model was presented, aiming at integrating diverse perspectives on knowledge, and since then, numerous cross-disciplinary research activities have contributed to the extension and refinement of the model. At the heart is the insight that knowledge develops along distinct phases in which its characteristics and thus requirements for support change. It brings together different perspectives and provides a framework for analysis and design of interventions.socio-technical patterns can be developed from peer coaching activities in which eliciting of motivational and affective aspects becomes possible, via a collaborative editing system Living Documents to social learning programmes to disseminate to and engage with a wider audience.
