Abstract: This paper takes a social perspective on the discipline of Knowledge Management (KM) within the processual, conceptual, and contextual dimensions of teaching this subject in a management education setting. We explore how for our students the concept of knowledge is a fascinating one as most of them wonder what is encompassed within |knowledge management| for it to be a subject, yet we know that they can manage it in their everyday practice of being a PG student or a practitioner. In this paper we aim to re-present KM, through a discussion of its development processes, dimensions based content and the multicultural context of delivering our course and its implications for future reflective practice in the discipline.

Keywords: knowledge management; dimensions of KM; process; content; multicultural context; teaching KM; learning KM; management education.
