Index Terms: Knowledge exchange, knowledge transfer, knowledge sharing, knowledge management, learning organization, research.



Abstract: In order to facilitate and enhance Knowledge Management with the adoption and use of ICT, there is a need for developing new methods, tools and techniques in the development of KM systems frameworks, knowledge processes and knowledge technologies to promote effective management of knowledge for improved service deliveries in higher education. This paper focuses on the conceptual framework of Knowledge Management and Exchange as a key driver of innovation - an essential component in the promotion of growing academic networks at regional, national and international levels. In addition, the paper identifies several research issues to bridge the gap that currently exists between the requirements of education, business communities and policymakers' conceptions and priorities around innovation and entrepreneurial management to address the different emerging projects and challenges in using ICT to enhance KM in higher education.
