Hi, I am working on a project to evaluate the Peer to Peer Learning experiences (events and network development) at a division of the IFC, and am looking for sample M&E frameworks that have been used in other settings. I also am going to make recommendations to the group to set up a system to more systematically capture the results achieved from the Peer to Peer Learning events and network, and am also looking for experiences on what has worked for others. Many possibilities come to… Continue

I attended the inaugural Knowledge Management Capacity Development in Africa event held in Khartoum back in Janury.
As part of the follow up to that event the conference chair and organiser Dr Gada Kadoda decided to use a postcard as a way of capturing some of the delegates perceptions. It showed a picture of some of the delegates on the steps of Freedom Hall Khartoum and an invitation on the reverse to submit comments and reflections.
What follows is her candid account of how… Continue

Something that most likely will influence the development of Knowledge Management (KM) as well as Science and Technology in the (near) future is the concept of Consciousness as the attribute of Knowledge which is concerned with 2 (two) choices of paradigm.
