Knowledge Books – Living Knowledge and Active Learning

The one-day workshop focuses on a method for capturing and representing expert knowledge which has been successful in Europe and Asia, but was only recently introduced to the United States. Jean-Louis Ermine’s MASK methodology leverages knowledge elicitation, knowledge modeling and representation, and knowledge architecture to capture expertise around a focused topic to produce a Knowledge Book. Knowledge Books are designed for interactive independent learning by novices and for easy on-going updates over time. The workshop will introduce the participants to the rationale behind the methodology, and the six models that serve as the foundation for a Knowledge Book. Participants will walk through the construction of a knowledge book during the workshop, and will receive templates for building additional knowledge books in the future.
