Playing for Keeps Webinar Session #3 of 3

Playing for Keeps Webinar Session #3 of 3

Event Description

Librarians everywhere are increasingly called upon to find more effective ways to engage users. To teach information literacy without “Teaching”, to build a sense of acceptance and belonging in Libraries, to scaffold the development of inquiring young minds… If these challenges sound familiar to you, ALIA Queensland has developed a series of lunchtime webinars to help master the art of Gamification:

Session 1: DnD and Roleplaying Games for Libraries and Library Outreach (17 April, RSVP 15 April)
Session 2: Gamifying Learning and Literacy (24 April, RSVP 22 April)
Session 3: First 5 Forever – Play and Learning in the Early Years (1 May, RSVP 29 April)

 Register for 1, 2 or all 3 webinars. The cost for each webinar is $15 (Members), $22.50 (Non-Members).

This registration page is ONLY for Session 3: First 5 Forever - Play and Learning in the Early Years.

Registrations for Session 1 closed on 15 April.

Registrations for Session 2 closed on 22 April.

Session 3 Content

 In 2015, The State Library of Queensland launched a program called First 5 Forever - an early years literacy and learning initiative which supports the learning journeys of little Queenslanders all over the state. In this session, we will hear about how the First 5 Forever program has been implemented in libraries, and what it looks like in different places.
