Becoming a practitioner researcher (LISRA Webinar)
From Helen Partridge on April 13th, 2021
A free session was held on the 13 April February 2021.
This webinar will discuss the experiences of a LIS practitioner researcher including discussion around applying for grants, conducting research, writing papers and utilising research in practice as well as recommendations on how to bridge the divide between researchers and practitioners. There are many benefits to conducting research, both to the users of a Library and to yourself as a LIS professional. Conducting and utilising research in our practice ensures that the services and support we provide is user driven and grounded in evidence and also ensures as LIS professionals that we continue to learn and evolve our own knowledge and skills and contribute that knowledge to the wider LIS field.
The session speaker was Dr Nicole Johnston, Edith Cowan University. The session was facilitated by Professor Helen Partridge.
