We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker: Dr. Barbara Czarniawska.  Dr. Czarniawska is Professor and Chair of Management Studies at Gothenburg Research Institute, School of Business, Economics and Law.

Theme

The theme of the OLKC 2013 Conference is: Translation, Transition & TransmissionThe theme builds upon scholarly conversations around the dimensions of social knowledge and learning including translation, or how we interpret knowledge, transition, which involves evolution and recombination processes, and transmission, the dissemination and diffusion of knowledge across time and space. These dimensions of learning assist us in framing and exploring three key questions: how do we relate to each other, how do we know, and how do we socially integrate. This scholarly exploration has the potential to further serve as a foundation for translational research and transdisciplinary lines of inquiry to advance theory and research on social knowledge and learning and its impact on practice.
