We have already done the first session down in Christchurch. It had a couple of rough edges, but I think we managed to kick the series off. The plan is to have two more sessions before Christmas. One in Auckland, the other in Hamilton. Hamilton is already full.
However, the Auckland one is still open. And big thanks to Auckland University for their help in sourcing the venue!

A one day learning event for library staff which focuses on the frameworks and tools of the participatory web - the Web 2.0 environment.
Participants will be offered some thoughts and ideas and will be encouraged to explore and use some the tools which Web 2.0 offers and to look at the possibilities for their own Library 2.0. The event is practically based and will be constructed to ensure that participants are engaged and have fun.
The day is aimed at people who have reasonable IT user skills i.e. they are familiar with the Internet, email and use of applications such as word processing. It is not designed for IT experts or those fluent in the use of Web 2.0 tools
The cost of attendance at the event covers morning and afternoon teas and lunch. Participants will receive resource material to take away. Travel costs etc are the responsibility of participants or their employers.
