Call for Participation: Australian Public Librarian’s Stories of Professional Development

Tame the Web - Thu, 2018-06-14 11:47

If you’re a librarian working in an Australian public library, we’d like to interview you about your professional development experiences!

Greetings all! I am recruiting interview subjects for a collaborative project involving researchers from San Jose State University and the University of Southern Queensland, in partnership with the Australian Library and Information Association. 

About the project

The aim of this project is to explore the professional development experiences and needs of public library staff across Australia. The outcomes of this project will – for the first time – establish national-level data to provide an evidence base about professional development in the public library sector in Australia. This empirical evidence base will provide a foundation from which a professional development framework for public library staff can be developed.

Interviews will be conducted using Narrative Inquiry as the overarching methodology. Interviews will explore the learning experiences of public library staff from across Australia. Interviews will be open-ended and semi-structured.

If you are a public librarian in Australia, please contact me at mstephens7@mac.com for more information.

Details from the consent document:

You will be asked to participate in an interview via the Web Conference software Zoom about your professional learning experiences. The session will be recorded for the purpose of analysis of data collected only. Recordings will not be made public or shared in any way.
