Dr Tony Leach and Dr Margaret Wood presented a paper on Knowledge Creation and Organisational Learning to an international audience in January at the International Conference and Exhibition on Knowledge-Based Business and Education in Bahrain. It was a multi-disciplinary conference organised by the University College of Bahrain which brought together education, industry and business professionals and covered a range of topics around the theme of knowledge-based business, industry and education. Colleagues attended from many different countries including Egypt, Canada, the USA, the Netherlands, Norway, Pakistan, Japan, Kuwait, the UAE and other Gulf states.
A highlight was the opening keynote speech by Dr John Portelli from the University of Toronto who spoke about issues of diversity and equity in education. Another presentation of particular interest was that by Dr Bob Hofman who spoke about the creation of digital re-usable content generated by learners.
It was good to have the opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world and to contribute to this event.
