I'm Karen and I am a genuine noob.

I work at Curtin University library (in Perth, Western Australia) as the 'Learning Services Coordinator' (a new role for the library, and for me).

I have recently become very interested in game-based learning and how it can be used in the academic library context, particularly in relation to the development of information and digital literacy skills - for students as well as academic and professional staff.

Apart from game-based learning, I am interested in (without knowing a huge amount about) 3-D virtual worlds, augmented reality, visualisation and the digital humanities. I love everything to do with learning technologies. I have a blog at infoliterati.com and my twitter handle is @infoliterati.

Unfortunately the time difference between the US and Australia makes it hard for me to attend the Google hangout ( 3 am here ) although I hope to make it to the occasional tweet chat. So I guess it will be mostly asynchronous for me, but that's okay - I'm really looking forward to learning heaps, which I know I will!

Very cool! I'm excited to read about your work and your interest. My sister is a library tech in a Vancouver private school. I recently suggested that she do her Master's degree, but I never would have thought about the applications in the academic library. Perhaps this is a good conversation to have! Lovely to read your intro!

Hi Karen,

I think this course will fit! What's happening in some libraries in the United States is that they are starting makerspaces and also incorporating Minecraft into their activities. Is anything like that happening in your area? Also the Hackathon methodology we'll be looking at is similar to "over-night" at the library or at least I can see some similarities. So welcome to the discussion!
