"Rm DE308, HK Polytechnic University, Hunghom"
Now that KMP is over a year old, it is time that we did a little self reflection, or in KM terms, an in-action review (as opposed to an after action review). With this exercise we hope to see where we are, review where we are going, and make any necessary changes. This will also be a great opportunity for KMP members to raise their suggestions on how KMP can serve you better.
The event will begin with the project presentation of the ISE5605 (Knowledge Communities) team that looked at KMP. The presentation will be given by team member Queenie Wong. This will be followed by the "response" of the KMP committee presented by Andreas Sher. The rest of the time will be given over to discussion on the way forward and suggestions by KMP members on what they would like to see from KMP.
We invite KMP members, alumni and current students, as well as anyone, member or not, is interested in communities and how they work to join us in providing input and learning together.
Note: We understand that you may be busy and cannot attend the meeting. However we are still interested in any feedback you may have for us. You can leave your comments and questions in this Google form.
