Kent State University will host the inaugural webinar to launch the KM@KSU webinar series ( on Thursday, February 21 at noon EST (  This opening webinar, hosted by Goodyear Professor Dr. Denise Bedford, will introduce the series format. 

Kent State defines knowledge management broadly to include: knowledge strategy and leadership, intellectual capital, knowledge economies, the economics of information, innovation, collaboration and communities, communication and culture, knowledge technologies, knowledge architecture, knowledge asset management, organizational learning, knowledge elicitation and knowledge representation.

Knowledge management is a practical discipline, and knowledge managers tend to only come together to talk about broad areas of KM at conferences or talk in small groups at our economic sectors or within our own communities.  The purpose of these weekly KM@KSU webinars is to broaden the dialog on topics related to knowledge management.

Any topic, whether practical or theoretical, that touches on any of these basic areas is welcome in the webinars.  The KM@KSU series is launching with some invited presenters to get the series started.  Hopefully, the series will continue indefinitely through broad participation from the knowledge management community.  A webinar will be offered anytime there is an interest.

If you'd like to submit an idea for a webinar, please go to our website ( and submit your own topic or recommend a speaker or a topic you'd like to hear about.  We strongly encourage students to present their work through this series. We will do our best to accommodate suggestions.

Webinars will be offered online Thursdays at noon and will typically run until 1:30 p.m.  If you can’t join the live presentation, the webinars will be recorded and archived for later listening. You do not need to be a member of a community. There is no cost other than your own time to sign on and participate.

Webinars are covered under the Creative Commons license, so the basic principle is open sharing. KM@KSU aims to follow knowledge management ideas and share what we’ve learned so we can advance the profession.

We look forward to hearing your suggestions for presentations and look forward to growing the community across economic sectors, across different types of organizations and across the globe.
