Re-conceptualising and Re-positioning Australian Library and information Science Education for the 21st century

We are a body of excellent and prolific educators and specialists in Library and information science education dedicated to raising the bar in the education sector. Our project focuses on how the country would continue to produce excellent and intellectual LIS graduates sustainably while leaving trails of legacies. We hope to ensure that graduates are trained in a professional environment resulting in great professional practice impacts in the current day world.

Our Activities

Our activities include:

Advocacy

As part of our goals to improve the standard of Library and Information Science in Australia through a unified and holistic framework, we constantly advocate for improving the system. Partnering with about eleven institutions, we make sure to improve LIS education quality and ensure continual maintenance of professional conduct in the global world. We are a body of excellent and prolific educators and specialists in Library and information science education determined to put Australia at the forefront of LIS education.

Reference Group

The reference group is a section in charge of the discussion and dealing with our project’s operational and management issues. Our project reference group is established to critically appraise the execution process and the effectiveness of the outcomes. The group also examines the team professional or industry experience. Our reference group consists of associates, team members, contributors, colleagues, experts, and partners who are versed in Library and Information Science.

Project Evaluation

Every project is established with the aims and objectives of sustainable execution plans, but not all projects are successful, and not all successful projects align with the project goals. Hence, the relevance of Project evaluation cannot be over-emphasised. A project without evaluation can be likened to learning without examination or a meal without taste. Our project evaluation ensures a wide range of beneficial realisation.

Resources

This speaks on the project resources. That is the workforce, capital and materials involved throughout implementing the project. All resources engaged in implementing the project are put up here to enable easy and faster dissemination of information on education issues related to Library and Information Science.

COVID-19 & Our Activities

COVID-19 is an abbreviation for “Coronavirus pandemic” and first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. On the 25th of January 2020, Australia recorded its first case from a man who had just returned from China. In response to this, the Australian government restricted extra-territorial movements. Due to initial lockdown and restrictions measure, certain activities were put on hold and did not exclude education. Also, during this period, the culture of online learning was encouraged.

In this vein, the Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ATLC) have always been on top of her game.  It is what we have always encouraged- learning outside the four walls of the classroom. Partnering with about eleven institutions, we make sure to improve the quality of education and ensure continual professional conduct in the global world. We provide project materials, theses, reports and other valuable resources and which are easily accessible.
