Internet initiation. Learning outcomes and evaluation of training sessions by participation.

Oke, Graeme (1997) Internet initiation. Learning outcomes and evaluation of training sessions by participation. In: AusWeb97 Third Australian World Wide Web Conference, 5-9 July 1997, Gold Coast, Queensland.


Internet access and the harnessing of the nebulas amount of information available on the Net has been available to staff and students of Victoria University for a number of years. Yet for a number of people the access to relevant information and/or the ability to "surf" the Net remains a mystery. The library has been in the forefront for the training and facilitation of the Internet through the expertise of the Subject Liaison Librarians to help navigate and clear away the mystic of this topical research tool, or toy, depending on its use! This paper presents the results, overviews and learning outcomes from four Internet Training Sessions open to University staff and research students held in 1996 at the Werribee Campus. Feedback from participants by filling in an evaluation form after the training session provide the basis for this paper, and have facilitated the trainers in establishing how the training session has come across to participants, what they have gleaned by participating, and how future sessions could be improved upon.
