We need to analyze and learn from these activities to derive insights on their effectiveness, in order to promote its systematic application in educational contexts, spanning from under-graduate, to post-graduate and professional training. This paper deals with one aspect of e-learning 2.0 practices, related to the relevance of acquiring and mastering a set of “Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) Skills”, to perform successfully in the Web 2.0 environment for learning in tertiary education. In the chapter we first present a PKM skills model hinging around a division into basic PKM competences, associated with the social software web practices of create-organize-share, and Higher Order skills (HO skills), favouring the advanced management of one's personal knowledge. Secondly, we present a learning design model and related examples, focused at guiding instructors in building educational activities consistent with the aim of teaching PKM skills
