The International Journal of Teaching and Case studies seeks original
manuscripts for the Special Issue on “Teaching Knowledge
Management: Integration to IS/CS Curriculum, Teaching strategies and
Teaching Case Studies” scheduled to appear in an early 2007 issue. 

Knowledge Management is an excellent business and technological
blueprint. Several schools of thought provide complementary
interpretations for the value and the practical implications of knowledge
management. The integration of Knowledge Management in curriculum
in the last years falls in a spectrum where two extremes exist: Computer
Science from one side and Information Systems and Business strategy
from the other. 

In this special issue we have a clear strategy. We want to develop
relevant knowledge and to promote fresh ideas for the integration of
Knowledge Management to CS and IS education. Through this
complementary approach we will be able to exploit the hard and soft
issues aiming to provide guidelines for “multidisciplinary” insights to
Knowledge management Teaching. 

This is why we organize this special issue around two thematic areas:
* Integration of Knowledge Management to CS and IS curriculum
o Strategic Fit
o Course descriptions
o Didactic approaches for specific KM topics
o Under/postgraduate considerations
* Teaching case studies for Knowledge Management 

More specific topics on didactic approaches include: 

* Knowledge management theories
* Knowledge management systems
* Social Perspectives of Knowledge Management
* Developmental aspects of Knowledge Management
* Assignments for development of Knowledge repositories/portals
* Collaborative/Communicative/Contextual Knowledge
Management [theoretical assignments as well as games,
interactions etc]
* Field study projects
* Knowledge management based performance
* Knowledge Management strategies
* Emerging Technologies for KM (e.g. ubiquitous and pervasive
technologies, open source, etc)
* Knowledge management on the Web
