First Name Last Name E-mail City & Country you work in Organization / Institution What areas of KM are you familiar with and have experience in context of intl. development? What aspect of the KM do you want to know more about? Please, upload your current photo - 1 MB max (no avatar :) John Akude Bonn, Germany German Development Institute Virtually none! I am not a practitioner; rather a researcher and very new to the topic All relevant aspects passfoto1.docx John Akude Germany German Development Institute I am relatively new to the topic and researching generally on all issues. However, I may be particularly interested in the conceptualization of knowledge and the relationship(s) between knowledge, development and innovation. Further interests are the policies and practices of the World Bank in this area as well as the K4D policies of OECD members. All of them! As a researcher, the more I know the better for me.

Managing websites. 1) Learning from others in how they share the good practices of the development work they are involved in and more specifically how that sharing is being used to innovate and improve practices and then re-apply them within the programmes/projects. 2) How organizations are currently sharing tools, good practices, case studies with other organisations, NGOs, and partner groups. And does this help new innovation and learning within those other orgs. jbailey.jpg John Bakum Ithaca, NY USA Cornell University I am new to organized KM but I believe learning more about will assist the international projects I work on. What are the current trends in KM?

This has led to a lot of discussion and interest in our document repository and how we might catalogue and make accessible outputs of differing formats (web tools, videos, slideshows, etc). I am a librarian, with training in cataloguing, standardized vocabulary, information-seeking behaviour and database design. I blog. Everything. My library experience is fairly traditional, but I get really excited about making information available and accessible in less traditional, more creative ways. Knowledge sharing is something I do a lot of with my blogging community, but not something I am used to incorporating into my work. mz.jpg
