LIS educators shock news!

A new study has found ‘shockingly’ that LIS educators are pretty much just the same as LIS workers, e.g. female and ageing.

Thank heavens we found that out.

This discussion paper has presented the preliminary results of a study aimed at establishing a more holistic profile and understanding of Australia’s information educators. Even the small snapshot provided here clearly illustrates that change is needed. Australian educators are ageing and this is a significant issue facing the future of the profession. Now is the time for action. Further analysis of the data will continue and be disseminated over time. This study is only one of several that are occurring within the research project Re-conceptualising and re-positioning Australian library and information science education for the twenty-first century.
