Description
Within the library and information context, data analytics is mostly discussed from a ‘research output’ perspective, such as in ‘research data analytics’, especially in academic and university libraries. In this workshop, we would like to discuss the use of data in all aspects of library and information research and practice, including gathering evidence to inform user services. We invite all researchers and library practitioners to come together to collaboratively think about ways through which we can solve real-world problems through data-driven LIS research. Please note that this workshop is not about research data management. This hands-on workshop will include some scenarios and real-life examples on how to use easily accessible data from within your own organisation to generate research questions and ideate research projects.

Our ways of working have needed to diversify as pandemic impacts continue to rock our world. Digital participation is now core to the GLAMR sector modes of practice. Navigating digital spaces and platforms is an embedded part of work life, regardless of whether your role is focused on team engagement, project flow, connecting to stakeholders, exhibitions, teaching and learning, collection management or a multitude of other GLAMR areas. To thrive in our current work ecosystems, to be active participants, the cultivation and evolution of digital dexterity is now critical. What has emerged as a sector wide challenge is how do we build this digital dexterity and enable widespread learning with sociological change in our work communities? More than this, how do we do this and still respond to the diversity of learning needs and communication preferences?   This submission proposes to delve into these questions by shaping an experiential workshop that focuses on the role of communication and shared learning in developing digital dexterity skills. Using experiential learning and the concepts of exponential learning as a stimulus, the workshop will group participants into project teams that will respond to a collaborative design challenge of creating a digital wellbeing resource. What will diversify in the design challenge is that project teams will be split into digital, non-digital, and blended-streams. Additionally, different constraints will be experienced by the project teams as wildcard moments (such as communication barriers, technical difficulties, change of platforms or redeployment of team members) are added during the team project time.   This workshop will be facilitated by CAUL’s Digital Dexterity Champions and intends to stimulate participant engagement across a diversity of digital dexterity areas. The facilitators will share their lived experience of learning within a community of practice, where digital dexterity is seen as an exponential domain. The facilitators will also explicitly position this workshop design as an outcome from a group culture that fosters innovation and experimentation, highlighting how exponential learning emerges from collaborative discussion, shared learnings, and co-ideation.

Writing a journal article for the first time can be daunting. As editors of the Journal of the Australian Library and Information Association (JALIA), we have had a range of experiences working with both practitioners and academic authors. In this hands-on session we will work with library and information professionals on the fundamentals of writing for publication, including how to get started and the essentials of the publishing process. We will discuss what makes a good practice-based paper, including how to consider implications for library and information professionals and researchers beyond your organisation. In this interactive workshop, we’ll spend time brainstorming and thinking about how to turn your ideas into academic writing, including structuring and developing your argument. Our presenters will share their experiences of the scholarly writing process, including responding to reviewer comments and feedback. Lastly, we will provide specific tips about the information-in-practice paper format in JALIA which offers a valuable stepping stone to longer form writing. This workshop will benefit practitioners who are new to academic writing but want to share workplace innovations, initiatives and projects with the sector. If you already have an idea for a paper, bring it with you. Even if you don’t, come along to plan for the future and meet other likeminded professionals with an interest in gaining more experience in this area.
