About

ISKME's mission is to improve the knowledge ecology of education through information and knowledge sharing, as a way to build capacity for continuous learning throughout the education sector.

The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME) is an independent, nonprofit research institute whose research assists schools, colleges, universities, and the organizations that support them to expand their capacity to collect and share information, apply it to well-defined problems, and create human-centered, knowledge-driven environments focused on learning and success.

ISKME achieves this goal by conducting social science research and evaluation, developing and sharing innovation, and facilitating knowledge sharing and field building:

Conducting research and evaluation in information sharing and knowledge sharing in the education sector;

Creating and supporting innovations in education research, policy, and practice;

Providing field-building activities, conferences and workshops in knowledge collaboration and innovation.

In examining and assisting K-12 and higher education, ISKME also helps philanthropic organizations and government agencies examine and improve their own and their grantees’ processes for continuous improvement, evaluation, and learning.
