Paddling the Waters : Our Journey to Ako Atea

Recently I gave a presentation at LIANZA Conference 2013: Wai Ora, Wai Maori, Waikato: the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa’s conference in Hamilton. My paper was called Paddling the Waters : our Journey to Ako Atea, and it was written with my colleague Justin Heke. It is about our new model of integrated learning and library support at Bay of Plenty Polytechnic. The presentation explains some of the drivers for the change, outlines some of our successes and challenges, and ends with my thoughts about the skills and leadership practices that seem to me to be suited to this model of service. Here is the link to the visual presentation on Slideshare with accompanying notes. You can read the full paper here : Paddling the Waters
