Abstract

In 2013, library staff were part of a Leading Learning team created for the college’s internal professional development program. Mr Robert Tassoni Deputy Principal – Curriculum, Standards and Innovation, instigated a Leading Learning team approach to our professional development for that year. The program was designed to allow teams to investigate areas of interest to the teaching staff that impacted upon the learning of our students. The library had recently added a new ebook and audio book collection to our range of offerings for our students and we were keen to explore, through the Leading Learning team approach, how the students were responding to the new format. The project also included an analysis of the science etextbooks in wide use across the science curriculum, but that aspect of the project will not be addressed in this paper.
