Start: 0
Report Publication Date: N/A
Primary Project Leader Helen Partridge

Funding
Amount: $90,000.00 Body: Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC)
Summary
Web 2.0 requires a library and information science (LIS) professional with a new type of skill and knowledge. However, LIS education in Australia continues to be framed in disciplinary traditions that do not reflect these changing requirements. This fellowship will develop Guiding Principles for Library and Information Science Education 2.0. It will make an important contribution to ensuring that Australian LIS graduates are equipped with the capabilities required of the contemporary profession. Although the fellowship?s focus is on the LIS discipline resources will be developed to inform educational practices in other professions. A model for undertaking similar studies in other disciplinary contexts will be provided. Project blog
