For ISKO UK the aim “to encourage and support the next generation of Knowledge Organization researchers and practitioners, with attention to continuing professional development as  well as basic education and training" is a vital strand of our mission.

Towards this goal ISKO UK is pleased to introduce a series of virtual classes under the umbrella title  Knowledge Organization Education (KO-ED).
