Hi I’m Kat! I work for Deakin Library, with a focus on learning experience and digital literacies skill building. Full of ideas and what if questions, I have a slightly cheer squad, optimistic and enthusiastic approach to Library practice. But – I hasten to add – I have developed in a decade of experience a pragmatism and operationalised side to my work behaviours. The two aspects that bring me the most joy in working as a Librarian are the relational connections with colleagues and the new learnings/research discussions that emerge in the course of my work. I’m a member of the CAUL Conference Project Team.
In my role as Learning Coordinator at Curtin University Library I develop learning programs, interactive activities and resources designed to develop information and digital literacies. In the physical world the Library Makerspace is my base, nurturing and enabling me to bring a creative, experiential and playful approach approach to learning. In the virtual world, I love to connect with the library world and beyond through the Digidex Community of Practice.
