Information Management Education

Greetings from the National Archives of Australia in Canberra, where the Records Management Association of Australasia is hosting "ACT Education Pathways". I will be speaking about information management at ANU. Also speaking are people from Canberra Institute of Technology up to Certificate IV, University of Canberra Master of Information Studies, Aurora Foundation Ltd, National Archives of Australia Short Courses, Charles Stuart University.

NAA are planning to run courses in 2012 on digital information records (2 days) and metadata (half day). This is of interest as I have been teaching about these at ANU.

NAA are also looking at providing courses by webinar. CIT hold classes for 49 weeks a year.
University of Canberra, like ANU, use the Moodle Learning Management System for teaching.

What might influence information management and record keeping in the public service is the Cyber white paper being prepared for release in early 2012.
