LATINA UGANDA – Day Six – Monday 24th June 2013

June 24, 2013

Today we shall begin planning for group work  but first we have to introduce the concept- Co-production.  This idea is about individuals, communities and organisations having the skills, knowledge and ability to work together, create opportunities and solve problems.

Participants need to learn group dynamics since we are training Information Managers. The nature of our work is User-centered so the products we design should be able to meet the ever changing information needs of our users.

Library Users should always be involved in the product design since they are the consumers. So, how do you deal with people from different backgrounds? We are yet to explore, just keep following LATINA UGANDA as events unfold.

    I think this is a good item. Most times, developers put up ‘NICE’ things which interest them but end up being rejected by the users. I think this will direct us a great deal.

    Enjoy LATINA-Uganda 2013 Day 6

      Product design should involve the consumers since these products are meant for them. Why not?

    All speakers /trainers, are excellent, their presence in the program is goal motivating. trainers are always very helpful in every way. and the impressive knowledge they are imparting in us. so they deserve a salute for the effort and attempts they are making .

    Wow! the projects seem to be taking way too much time to finish,i mean the Digital story telling and Videography. Today we actually went past lunch time and we heard very little time in the afternoon. Nevertheless, the ICT session was refreshing. Most of the stuff was not new but going over them was important. Thanks Brian and Tim.
