The first two days were allotted for the training on “Demystifying Knowledge Management (KM)” which focused on the foundational concepts and principles of KM in the agriculture and fisheries sector. Topics discussed include foundation and principles of KM; knowledge capture in the organizational, sectoral and personal level; documents management; and knowledge sharing and KM for the agriculture sector.
The remaining three days were allotted for “Knowledge Sharing for Your Work: Techniques and Tools for Project KM,” the highlight of which was the workshop on knowledge sharing through the use of social media.
The participants were divided into four groups to enable them to demonstrate knowledge sharing to external audiences through the use of social media networks, particularly blogging via WordPress, vlogging (video blogging) via YouTube, CoPs (community of practice) via Facebook Workgroups, and Tweets (online post consisting of 140 character or less) via Twitter. Below are the links of the group outputs:
