Unconferencing South of the Border!

I'm currently attending an “unconference” at Yarra Plenty Library in Melbourne. O.K.- I can already hear you asking “what's an unconference?”.

At an unconference the participants develop the agenda and facilitators lead groups in discussing the topics the group has decided on as a collective. It may sound like chaos but it works really well and results in an engaged audience. Most of the today's topics revolve around technology and its place in libraries. There was also a really interesting presentation about skoolaborate (www.skoolaborate.com) which has some synergies with the Orange e2 project Central West Libraries is hoping to partner with.

Will Central West Libraries have an unconference? -you can count on it!

Cheers
