Graduate subject - Information Management - 400 level


This subject begins with an examination of the fundamental philosophies of information and knowledge relevant to the areas of information management and knowledge management. It also serves as an introduction to frameworks for exploring and analysing people's information behaviour. Students develop a detailed understanding of the theoretical underpinnings that link people, information and knowledge. The subject introduces the concepts of information ecologies and communities of practice as part of the skill set for working with and understanding the implications of people needing, using and adding value to information. These concepts draw on multidisciplinary theories articulated within the social, cognitive, management and computing sciences.
