In any case Peter J. Bury from IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre , but probably also Ewen le Borgne, IRC and anybody else who likes to chip in!join
Are you passionate about washing hands with soap and addressing innovative communication in all its forms in the WASH sector (you may include IWRM for sustained WASH services)? Join us!
Register your interest here, join the gang on the Ning thing: WASHhuddleabout what?
Add or send to me any topic you would like to address in the WASHuddle!We propose to look at:
1. learning and sharing experiences at various and multi-levels, horizontal and vertical. IRC’s experience here is with Multi-Stakeholder Platforms (MSP) a.k.a. the Learning Alliance Approach;
2. innovative ways of communication for learning and sharing. IRC would like to learn about using mobile phones and sms for citizens involvement in WASH sector monitoring and demanding good governance;
3. meta level access to resources on the web. How to use social bookmarking (delicious tags) and related forms of social networking (LinkedIn, Facebook and their groups, Twitter (groups and tags such as #wash4dev) in an effective and user-friendly way.
4. mapping as a visual way to make complexities in the WASH sector better understandable and easier to analyse.
5. what are existing or new community of practice (CoP) on KS/KM WASHuddling? Is there a scope of making links among them? IRC has run and runs a number of platforms meant to become true CoPs, for example http://groups.google.com.gh/group/washsectorlearning
6. Document and share information by responding to the inter-huddle questions below.
Peterhttp://www.google.com/profiles/profBury Inter huddle questions
Here a set of questions that could be useful to address to facilitate exchange with other huddles. This basic set of questions, which we expect all huddles will address, can be complemented by other issues or experiences huddles may wish to share with others.
The idea is that each huddle will document in various shareable ways (see sharing opportunities and methods offered during the KM4dev event) to allow exchange with other huddles.Proposed set of questions
1. What are the top 3 (max. 5) questions or ideas related to KS / KM in your huddle that you address? Indicate whether you offer to share and/or request to learn from other huddles.
2. In your huddle, what are the projects / case studies / examples you wish to share with other huddles. Indicate the KS / KM approach / method / tool and how it serves the needs in your huddle. In line with this we might want to highlight specific trends and challenges that are affecting our huddle and for which KM/KS could have a positive impact?
3. Have you identified what you think may be factors/ideas that influence KS/KM in your huddle domain? Any which do you think may be more or less universal?
4. How do you think that what you are talking about in your huddle might relate to other huddles?
5. Experiences with inter-lingual / cultural experiences with KS/KM learning/sharing: what works, what doesn't, cost/benefit. Did we ever come about methods in one language that don't or do work in other languages? E.g. are some methods language/culture specific?
Till soon, Peter
