SET Training School: Towards a Curriculum for Social and Digital Inclusion and Lifelong Learning #WLIC2022

There is a free physical-only WLIC satellite event in Dublin, Ireland 29-30 July 2022: Towards a Curriculum for Social and Digital Inclusion and Lifelong Learning. It is organised by the IFLA Section Education and Training (SET) and hosted by the School of Information & Communication Studies, University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland. It is held immediately after the World Library and Information Conference in Dublin. It is free, but limited to 50 participants.
"The Post-Conference Satellite aims to provide an overview of conceptual foundations of community-centered LIS education, reflecting IFLA Global Vision and a paradigm shift to proactive libraries transforming communities. SET Training School addresses the knowledge and skills Library and Information Science (LIS) professionals require to take on leadership roles and to become advocates and change-makers who enrich the lives of the diverse communities they serve. This in-person Satellite will provide the opportunity to explore contemporary educational programs and projects and to discuss future developments of curricula suitable for the community-centered libraries that are aimed at social inclusion, digital equity, and lifelong learning." 

I am honoured to say that I was asked to give a keynote talk on the 29th. Other talks are from colleagues in South Africa, Ireland, Nigeria, Oman, Ireland, the Netherlands and the USA. The full programme and link to booking form is here:
