What an innovative bunch of students they have at Dalhousie. They are hosting their own conference. I really like how they pulled away from library jargon and focussed in on the broader world of innovation, information and leadership.
This session that caught my eye:
Panel Two: Growing a Knowledge Society: Leadership in the Private Sector, Education and Government
Knowledge societies require more than an abundance of information and information communication technologies. Leveraging information and technology provides new ways for citizens and organizations to interact with, share and create knowledge.
What initiatives are being undertaken by the private sector? By government? How do we enable people to participate in a knowledge society?
Very 2.0 without ever using the term! And one of the panel speakers is Mark Leggott.
That’s pretty nifty work!
