Our presentation at VALA2010 is Thursday morning (Wednesday night for me).

We’re utilizing this conference to launch a new Web site dedicated to the Learning 2.0 Research we’re doing for CAVAL:

And you can follow along!

Here’s an updated draft of our slides:

Our presentation outlines the development and research methodology of the CAVAL 2009 Visiting Scholar Research Project, Measuring the Value and Effect of Learning 2.0 Programs in Libraries. Created to include all staff in a learning activity and offered to all via a Creative Commons license, some LIS practitioners have lauded Learning 2.0 programs as a successful way to engage staff. Replicated more than 1000 times across the globe in various types of libraries and over 30 times in Australia alone, this project explores the true impact of the program on Australian libraries

I’ve recorded videos for my parts of the presentation and will put them up tomorrow when we start. I will be live online during the session to chat via Twitter (#VALA2010).

Time & Date: 11:05am Thursday, February 11, 2010 in Melbourne | 7:05 EST / 6:05pm CST Wednesday, February 10, 2010
