COVID19: Mask Misinformation and Social Noise

Description: Disinformation and misinformation are pervasive in unregulated social-media environments, which are used habitually for obtaining news. Fenn et al in 2019 stated that “Given that people tend to share interesting information to maintain social relationships or to manage their impressions, information that receives more likes may subsequently be shared more often” (Fenn, Ramsay, Kantner, Pezdek, & Abed, 2019, p.133) Recent studies also revealed that misinformation from politicians and celebrities has increased in recent years which lead to more engagement on Twitter (Brennen, et al. 2020 ). There has been a lot of misinformation pertaining to COVID-19 masks on Twitter. Due to the misinformation, many people might not believe in the effectiveness of masks. Even though studies have shown the effectiveness of wearing masks in different countries (Lyu and Wehby, 2020). Not wearing masks affects people's health and indirectly increases the spread of COVID-19. Studies of social noise and misinformation cases on social media are needed, specifically focusing on how social noise influences and contributes to the spread of misleading and possibly harmful messages.

Development of Micro and Pilot Projects, Evaluation of Technologies, and Developing Data/Information Infrastructure

Description: Successful organizations are continuously looking for better ways to improve efficiency. Knowledge management (KM) in institutions is essentially based on an understanding of knowledge creation and knowledge transfer. At Tarrant County College, we are currently developing a District-wide knowledge management (KM) program. This KM process is implemented via micro pilot projects and processes; and an analysis of current technology, structure, and culture. We carefully try to anticipate challenges we will encounter as the project is executed (geographical distance during a pandemic, cultural barriers, dealing with tacit knowledge…). Next, we carefully begin to create a road map for the KM process including: Establishing objectives, preparing culture change, creating a high-level process, identifying KM/communication/knowledge dissemination gaps, selecting appropriate technology, and deciphering the current status of KM throughout the District. Then, we attempt to implement our KM process via micro pilot projects. We will soon develop methods for evaluating our KM workflow. Our initial results suggest Laserfiche might be able to host 70% of or data and information, however other tools such as ITSM, Microsoft TEAMS, Team Dynamics… will also be needed to host data and information.

Exploring Knowledge Creation from Project Management Processes using an Analytics Approach: A First Look

Description: Organizations struggle to harness tacit knowledge – the knowledge that resides in the heads of knowledge workers, whereas there are always opportunities to capture knowledge during project management activities. Using a literature review, this paper analyzes how knowledge can be captured during different project management phases. It attempts to bridge frequently ignored areas of project management, knowledge management, and analytics.
