The Webinar of the Education and Training Section focused on projects and programs with innovative LIS competencies in education and practice; what it took to get there, what challenges they faced, what new opportunities it presented for educators, librarians and patrons, as well as their communities, equip communities with new literacies, where people were trying to help communities with certain needs, overcoming some of the challenges facing a community. The implementation of these competencies will help to inform future curricular decisions, recommendations and best practices.

This is the first of two webinars organised under the theme of “Putting Emerging LIS Competencies into Education and Practice: Challenges and Opportunities”. A Question and Answer session will follow each session.
