Track Description and Topics of Interest

Globalization and economic dynamics have forced individuals and organizations to search for new ways to strengthen their competitive advantages. Improvement of learning and human performance for sustainable development has been recognized as a key strategy. In this context, it is crucial to help learners in educational institutions and knowledge workers in organizations to improve their capabilities for self-directed and life-long learning. Moreover, learning in organizations needs to serve business goals by aligning learning with organizational systems, structures and policies, and developing organizational forms of knowledge. Therefore, learning in today’s environment has expanded from individual to organizational and community levels, placing more emphasis on the externalization of tacit knowledge, creation of new knowledge, and retention of knowledge assets for sustainable development and innovation.

In the meantime, advances in technology have been increasingly enabling and facilitating learning and knowledge-related initiatives. Technology has fundamentally changed the way to access and extract knowledge and to communicate with others. Various technology-based solutions and novel approaches are widely used in educational institutions, corporations, governments, and communities. They have largely widened learning opportunities through the provision of resource-rich and learner-centered environment, computer-based learning assistance, and expanded social interactions involving the development of new forms of learning communities and networks.

This track aims to provide a forum for academics and practitioners to explore issues related to use, analysis, design, and evaluation of technology-based approaches for learning and knowledge management in various educational, organizational and community environments as well as the impact of technology on improving learning and performance at individual, organizational and community levels.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer-supported self-directed learning
  • Technology for life-long learning
  • Web-based training
  • E-learning in the workplace
  • Technology-enhanced learning and human performance
  • Technology for human resource development
  • Web-based learning and knowledge communities
  • Technology-supported communities of practice
  • Knowledge management systems
  • Case study and best practice of knowledge management
  • Knowledge modeling and visualization
  • Technology for knowledge sharing and transfer
  • Integration of knowledge management and e-learning
