Thanks everyone who participated in the November chat, on Knowvember and all things Knowledge Management-y, which took place yesterday, Tuesday 17th November. Thanks in particular to Holly Case Wyatt, who led the chat. The transcript and analytics are now available.
We’re already planning our annual light-hearted Christmas event, which takes place at 8pm on Tuesday
Happy KNOWvember20! We have reached that stage of the year when we like to showcase all the work that has been taking place to mobilise evidence and knowledge in the healthcare sector. The tools and techniques from the NHS Knowledge Mobilisation Framework are widely used and adapted to encourage healthcare staff to apply and use evidence in decision making, build know-how, continue to learn and drive innovation.
COVID-19 has presented particular challenges for effectively sharing knowledge but has also demonstrated the need to rapidly share evidence, know-how and good practice to improve healthcare outcomes. Join us on Tuesday 17th November at 12.30 to share ideas, think about good practice and discuss creative solutions to mobilise knowledge effectively online and during a pandemic.
What knowledge mobilisation activities have you run over the last year?
Has COVID-19 made a difference to your mobilising evidence and knowledge work?
What have you been asked to do for your organisation during Covid-19 that you would describe as mobilising evidence and knowledge and has this been different to the work you normally do?
What do you think NHS staff might value about organised knowledge mobilisation activities such as after action reviews, peer assists, knowledge cafes or randomised coffee trials?
How have you adapted your favourite knowledge mobilisation technique to work online?
What might be the advantages of organising an online knowledge mobilisation activity?
How do you promote the knowledge mobilisation techniques you use in your organisation?
Join us at 8pm on Tuesday 20th October for our next #ukmedlibs chat. This month we will be discussing moving teaching and training to online.
This year has seen a lot of us move our training sessions from in person to online. As we come to the end of the year, I thought it would be a good to idea to share what has worked, what went wrong and how we feel about training users remotely.
Pictures of pumpkins/ Halloween decorations optional.
Prior to COVID-19, did your library offer online teaching and training as a core service? If so, what did you offer? And if not, was it something you were planning on offering?
How have you adapted your teaching/ training sessions to online?
How have you developed your online teaching/ training skills?
What has worked well with online sessions?
And what has gone wrong?
Do you prefer online training to in person training?
What advice would you offer librarians/ library services who are new to offering online training/ teaching?
