CPDWL Standing Committee Member Highlight: Rajen Munoo

“This is How We Do It: One Professional Development Activity in the Lives of Librarians from Around the World” is a new series from the IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section to highlight our standing committee members, who they are and what they do!

In this post, we highlight Rajen Munoo, CPDWL standing committee member!

I am a member of the Library Association of Singapore’s Programmes and Engagement Committee and I organized a series of library visits as part of the Reconnect to get librarians to start participating in tours etc. The photos are from the last visit to the Singapore University of Technology and Design Library where we went off the beaten track to visit their Fab Lab! On display was an array of 3-D printed objects and in my mind I was thinking about how Librarians can support the Fab Lab! I also taught a new Professional Development Workshop for postgraduates called, Practical Business Research for the Digitalised Workplace. Together my colleague Kartini we included many active learning sections and in the photo you can see the gallery walk where students participated in a knowledge cafe to share their take-aways from an elearn object called, Digital Literacy: What you need to know! The new workshop was well received.

Why are you a standing committee member of CPDWL and what are you working on for CPDWL Section at the moment? 
Rajen: I enjoy the diversity of the team and also the rich experiences and sharing by everyone. I am currently co-organizing a webinar on the Infodemic with colleagues from Italy and Abidjan.
What is one advice you have for new librarians interested in getting involved in IFLA or in their library associations for professional development? 
Rajen: IFLA offers an amazing networking opportunity, In addition to serving in your local organization, it allows you to look beyond – be glocal!
