Telepresence: "Beaming in" to a Knowledge Cafe - David Gurteen (Gurteen Knowledge)

Telepresence: "Beaming in" to a Knowledge Cafe - David Gurteen (Gurteen Knowledge) | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"There is an interesting thread in the Gurteen Knowledge Forum on the subject of how to run a Virtual Knowledge Cafe that has been running for while. 

And then recently, I was talking to Kitty Wooley on Skype about this and we decided it would be interesting for her to join one of my London Knowledge Cafes virtually as an experiment. So this would be one virtual person in a sea of real people. My first thought was to have the "virtual Kitty" sit at a table as a laptop or better still as an IPad and to connect via Skype. It seemed to me that this could even work more generally if there was just one virtual person per table. 

But as I reflected on it - I realised that there might be some better technology available than a laptop or an iPad. My first thought was a remote controlled WiFi webcam such as this one BESTEX remote controlled webcam 

But it was obviously not ideal and so I Googled around a little and found Beam+ "

Knowledge Sharing by Guru David Gurteen at KHDA, Dubai, 2013

Published on 19 Dec 2013

This is a short video of Knowledge Cafe David Gurteen run for the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in Dubai on 29th October 2013 on Knowledge Sharing.

After a short talk by him about the power of conversation and an overview of the Knowledge Cafe process, the trigger question for the Cafe conversation was "What can we each do individually to encourage more knowledge sharing in our organization?"

You can view his slides here:http://www.slideshare.net/dgurteen/kh...

As you can see in the video, this was a very engaged, enthusiastic group.

The KHDA is responsible for the growth, direction and quality of private education and learning in Dubai. They are a regulatory authority in the Government of Dubai which supports the improvement of schools, universities, training institutes and other human resource sectors.

I recall a recent post on Linkedin regarding the future of knowledge cafes. Given the expansion of global workforce, virtual is the only way to go. The interesting question is: how will this affect traditional knowledge cafe framework?

Virtual Knowledge Cafes - does anyone have any tips? - LinkedIn Group discussion

Virtual Knowledge Cafes - does anyone have any tips? - LinkedIn Group discussion | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Working internationally means we can't get people together in the same room for the conversations which are the power of the knowledge cafe. Does anyone have any experience of running a knowledge cafe virtually and how did you make it work?

David Gurteen gives an insightful reply with various links to consider when wanting to do a Virtual Knowledge Café.

If you think interactive workshops are important learning tools, and if you work for or with a geographically distributed group of people, you'll be interested in this conversation.

KM UK 2013: Knowledge Cafe: Should we be using rewards and recognition to motivate knowledge sharing? (Gurteen Knowledge)

KM UK 2013: Knowledge Cafe: Should we be using rewards and recognition to motivate knowledge sharing? (Gurteen Knowledge) | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

Blog Post by David Gurteen: KM UK 2013: Knowledge Cafe:

A Knowledge Cafe with a difference! 


"...the question "Should we be using rewards and recognition to motivate knowledge sharing?" 

The video then includes a clip of the small group conversations in the Cafe itself, followed by some comments by Paul Corney (the conference chair) and interviews with Mark Field and Florence Kiff, two of the conference participants. 

It gives a good feel for the Cafe concept and the event on the day but note that the tables were far too large for a good conversation as many of them had 6, 7 or 8 people, some even more. The Cafe works best with people sitting in groups of 3, 4 or 5 in touching distance of each other."

A Knowledge Cafe about rewards in KM. Interesting!

Human being want to contribute by doing something that matters ... rewards can de-motivate that behavior.

 

Great 18-minute video (keep watching for The Office clips!)

Solving Knowledge Management with Speed Dating: Interview with Clay Hebert | Trusted Advisor

Solving Knowledge Management with Speed Dating: Interview with Clay Hebert | Trusted Advisor | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

Most corporate discussions about knowledge management (KM) are about databases, software, and IT.

One mid-sized law firm I know took a different approach – getting partners to interact over lunch. It was very effective.

It turns out the 1-to-1 nature of speed dating is perfect for mega-companies that want to improve KM.

That’s the kind of insight Clay Hebert has come up with. I met with him recently in his coffee-shop office so far on the West Side of Manhattan it might as well be in the Hudson. Here are excerpts."
