In one Australian university, sessional and permanent academics and support staff have been involved in Digital Literacy (DL). This paper reflects on an agile and creative model developed to support Sessional Academics’ (SAs) learning. In response to their needs, the model changed the approach to professional development. The Agile Approach encouraged inquiry into learning and teaching, and the scholarship of teaching and learning The model was developed through collaboration between academics, librarians and the Digital Literacy Learning Designer. The findings indicate that the collaboration and interaction between the various partners add value to ensure the attainment of DL and ‘just in time’ learning. The Model emphasizes flexibility and nimbleness to develop iterative teaching ideas and deploying social technologies to engage staff in preparation for future readiness and employability.
