SLANSW Professional Learning Summit

Information and Innovation: Information Fluency Framework and Digital Literacy

SLANSW Zoom Room 

The September SLANSW Professional Learning Summit focuses on the theme of Innovation and Information. Embracing the theme of innovation, the PL Summit will trial a new hybrid format. The morning session will be delivered online, with the option for participants to attend at a nominated Satellite Hub location, where they can engage with workshops in small groups. 

The opening  keynote will be followed by workshops providing practical guidance and expertise on implementing the Information Fluency Framework in your school. This session will be streamed for Primary and Secondary participants.

We recommend all participants access the Online Meet-Up recording from August 2022 an Introduction to the Information Fluency Framework. This is available free to SLANSW Members in the Member Portal.

Dr Mathieu O'Neil will present the closing keynote on his work, which was recently highlighted in the Term 2, 2022 SCIS Connections journal. He will consider the use of Wikipedia as a fact checking tool, with particular reference to a research pilot project with Year 4, 5 and 7 students in ACT schools. This work is directly relevant to the Information Fluency Framework.

Lightning Talks will be a new format offered in this Summit and they will be structured around the keynote and workshops sessions. The Lightning Talks will focus on technology and digital literacy.


Afternoon Session - Satellite venues only

This will be an opportunity for members to engage with content that is locally and regionally relevant. Satellite Hub hosts may choose to offer another workshop activity or facilitate a professional discussion to support their region. 

Details of the full summit program are available here.
