Workforce Open Knowledge Exchange - The Institute developed
an open knowledge exchange for the workforce system. This knowledge
exchange platform, or Workforce Open Knowledge Exchange (WOKE), is an
effective means for sharing and re-using knowledge among all members
under the workforce development umbrella. WOKE is a necessary step in
shaping and pushing forward the evolution of a workforce development
system. A pilot WOKE has been developed as an outcome of the project.
The WOKE includes 1) a workforce ontology that serves as a semantic
framework connecting various disciplines, organizations and programs
engaged in workforce development; 2) a knowledge base; 3) user
interfaces, and 4) tools and templates for automatic knowledge capture.
In addition to the WOKE, the project will also produce a plan for
taking the pilot WOKE to scale and a series of activities that will
serve to both disseminate the WOKE and associated products as well as
engage both workforce and knowledge management communities. You may

The Institute was host to the Workplace Learning Conference in 2001 and 2003 .
2003, the Institute commissioned seven papers in connection with the
conference that year. These papers are available for download in .pdf
