Phase 2 of Just A Click Away Public Legal Education Project

This is a follow-up to the Library Boy post of September 21, 2011 entitled Just a Click Away Conference Report on Public Legal Education.

Just A Click Away is a Canada-wide initiative on public legal education and information (PLEI). It organized a successful conference in Vancouver last February.

It has just announced that it has received funding for Phase 2 of its work with a focus on Supporting a Culture of Sharing:
"This next phase features four elements:
  • An online community of practice. Led by PovNet, we will provide a private online space for PLEI practitioners to have frank conversations and share experiences and learning about technology and PLEI on an ongoing basis.
  • A series of webinar broadcasts. Led by Éducaloi, we will hold a series of 8 broadcast webinars over a two year period where PLEI practitioners, managers, and funders from across Canada can learn about key topics relating to technology and PLEI.
  • A series of hand-on web labs. Led by CLEO [Community Legal Education Ontario], we will hold a series of 8 hands-on interactive workshops over the web aimed at PLEI practitioners who work directly with online technologies.
  • Documentation of best practices. Led by Courthouse Libraries BC, we will create online PLEI best practices guides, developed from the exchanges in the online community of practice space, the webinar broadcasts and the hands-on web labs."
