Despite the best of social media tools, a face-to-face dialogue over your favorite drink still remains the best mode for sharing ideas and exchanging

 

"The Conversation Cafe as a Knowledge Management tool has increasingly gained in importance. Thanks to eminent leaders in the field like David Gurteen andNancy Dixon, more and more organizations are reaping the benefits of conversation as a tool."

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?

Capturing actionable insights from Knowledge Cafes - David Gurteen

Capturing actionable insights from Knowledge Cafes - David Gurteen | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

 "...a way to capture "actionable insights" and feedback from my Knowledge Cafes that did not get in the way the conversation, was easy, simple; that everyone could do and that allowed me to collate and distribute the items to the participants. 

A few weeks ago, after some inspiration from Paul Corney and Mark Field, I decided it was time to try an experiment and I have developed a system to capture items by SMS and post them to a page on my website that I am calling an "SMS Wall". 

Why do it like this rather than use Twitter or some other social tool? Quite simply, I wanted everyone to have the ability to post to the wall. 

Not everyone, has a smartphone, not everyone uses Twitter and not everyone has an internet connection but almost everyone has a basic phone with SMS and knows how to use it. 

People can also post messages before the Knowledge Cafe, during the KCafe, at the end of the KCafe and even on the train on the way home. 

Karen du Toit's insight:

I would love to hear the feedback on this?

I still like the idea of using Twitter and curating it afterwards via the hashtag/s!

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.
