It seems a lot of the training is happening in a ‘filtered down’ way like this. I wonder if those of you who have done this think it has any benefits/problems compared with everyone going on the same training?

 

Related to this is the issue of self-paced learning. Those of you who took this approach, did you find it difficult to fit this round the rest of your work and, where it’s happening in teams how did people check that everyone understood what they were learning?

On training para-professional staff: after a couple of us at the professional level attended the “FRBR for the terrified” workshop, I gave the paraprofs in our department a boiled-down version one morning, including making them do that activity to place different “things” on the WEMI scale.  As the Toolkit is so organized around FRBR, I think they should at least have some introduction to it.  Also, a number of our paraprofessionals are doing or have recently done their library qualifications and therefore are interested in learning the more “advanced” aspects.

 

But I do expect that they’ll perform their day to day work referring to our local documentation and not worrying much about FRBR.

Can I ask, in terms of training para-professional cataloguing staff are people planning on teaching FRBR and WEMI.  Like Katrina I’ve focused on the actual practicalities of RDA for now with the thought that I will return to FRBR and WEMI when our catalogues are more structured in that way.  But I’d be interested to hear what others are doing.

Thanks for this Jackie. I’m interested to see you’ve built in time for discussion sessions as well as just training. Do you anticipate continuing these once you start cataloguing fully?

 

I’m also interested in the whole WEMI thing. I suspect I’ve not given that as much thought as I should have compared to the actual practicalities of doing RDA. Maybe that’s incredibly blinkered of me though…..

We have drawn up a training programme to take place over the next few months, starting with an introductory session for all staff, then more tailored sessions for cataloguing staff, with the expectation that they will do some self tutoring probably using the Cambridge materials (thanks very much for these), plus some discussion sessions. As mentioned earlier, trying to explain FRBR, and WEMI etc to the uninitiated, even the initiated, is quite a challenge!

Good afternoon and welcome back to the discussion on adopting RDA where we’re turning our thoughts to training.

 

If you’re just catching up with the morning discussion (and thank you to all those who have already contributed), then feel free to continue to reply to any messages.

 

As with the morning session, we’ll have some prompts to direct the discussion, but please post anything you think is relevant.  If you're posting about something new, then please give your subject header a relevant title so that those participating can keep track of conversations more easily.

 

A reminder that if you’re replying to messages and want them to post to the list, then hit ‘Reply to all’ rather than just ‘Reply’ as that’ll go only to the sender of the message and not the whole list.

 

To start this session, I’d like to start by asking

 

How did you approach/are you approaching training? – this can be for those in your team, or as touched upon this morning, for those who don’t catalogue directly but still might be affected.

 

Katrina
