Knowledge Management in the Learning Society. Education and Skills.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This book focuses on understanding knowledge and learning in the contexts of economic development and social cohesion. A preliminary overview is presented of the knowledge processes at work in different sectors, and the book identifies a number of ways in which microlevel or sectoral understanding of the knowledge-based economy is important in conjunction with more macrolevel insights. These insights are valuable for government, economic sectors, and public and private enterprises and institutions as they seek to improve their knowledge and learning performance; this performance is an increasingly important function in a learning society. Special attention is given to improving production, mediation, and use in the education sector. The analyses are derived from four forums that consist of high-level participants from the private sector, policymakers, academics from a wide range of disciplines, and authorities in health and education research--all of whom work on issues and problems related to how knowledge and learning will become key drivers of social and economic change in the 21st century. (Contains 53 references.) (DFR)
