Australian Learning 2.0 Surveys Launched

Below is the text of our survey invitation for CAVAL. I wanted to share it here as well. If you are in Australia and would like to take the survey, please see this URL:

I’m excited to see the project moving along. I also can’t believe how soon we’ll be leaving for five weeks Down Under – just three short months. I’m also excited that we’ve already gotten confirmation that we’ll be presenting preliminary results at the 2010 Public Library Association meeting in Portland!

Dear Australian library colleagues,

You may have seen the announcement earlier this year where I was appointed as the 2009 CAVAL Visiting Scholar. My research, “Measuring the Value and Effect of Learning 2.0 Programs in Libraries” will evaluate the impact of Learning 2.0 programs in Australia and the perceived levels of openness, transparency and trust by staff in organizations that have completed the course.

Now it’s time for me to ask for your help!

If you have completed a 23 Things / Learning 2.0 program, I’d like to invite you to participate in an online survey.

If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, please contact me (email is on front of survey).

If have been the person responsible for developing and/or implementing a 23 Things / Learning 2.0 program for your library (single library service or a consortia program), please email your contact details to Warren Cheetham at CityLibraries Townsville (warren.cheetham@townsville.qld.gov.au). I have a special survey which Warren will send to you, just for people who have lead a learning 2.0 program.

Thank you for your participation in my research. I am looking forward to my trip to Australia in October!

Best wishes,

  1. Michael,, your research sounds great and I look forward to reading about it. I have been involved in administering the Learning 2.0 program to numberous organisations. I would be happy to catch up with you and discuss any aspects of the programs

  2. Hi Michael,

    I’m looking forward to reading the fruits of your research. One of the areas of responsibility that I’ve been recently given is the promotion of e-learning services within our library service, which is a cause of great excitement and some trepidation (being a still relatively new librarian). I saw you when you last spoke in Adelaide, was very impressed, and pleased when your appointment was announced. Good luck!

  3. I’d love to help out with your research and have just started the survey but am finding it limiting.

    The question about what tools I use as a result of L2.0 – why not give us the ability to choose several options? I blog personally and for library users, but cannot select both.

    Also, there is no way to indicate if I was already using particular tools before L2.0. This also applies to the “as a result of my participation” question. If all those things applied to me before doing the course.
