Working together: the importance of collaboration between TAFE library and TAFE teachers

ALIA National 2014 Conference, 15-19 September 2014 Melbourne : together we are stronger

There and back: a story of how an idea grew beyond expectations

ALIA National 2014 Conference, 15-19 September 2014 Melbourne : together we are stronger
In 2013 the ANZ 23 Mobile Things programme took over the Southern Hemisphere as the professional development programme of choice.  Over 6 months, 770 people learnt how to use their mobile device to enhance their life, their libraries and their patrons’ ability to connect.

Mentoring from day one (and before)

ALIA National 2014 Conference, 15-19 September 2014 Melbourne : together we are stronger
In this conference paper, participants will consider the induction process from the new staff member’s point of view.  They will attempt to reframe standardised, organisation-centred inductions in order to create experiences from which the staff member and the organisation both benefit.  They will explore how organisations can better identify the skills and expertise that new staff bring, how this knowledge can be shared and how staff can be mentored meaningfully.

Maker space @ the edge

This conference presentation (PowerPoint slides) supports the paper and will provide an overview of The Edge as a maker space within the State Library of Queensland, and how maker spaces can support innovation in tough times.
