Information Literacy: the Teaching Takeaway
Enormous thanks to all our presenters and delegates for making our events in Newcastle and Northampton such a great success.
For all of you who were unable to attend, documents and presentations are being added to the members' area of our website.
About the events
This year we focused on delivering information literacy and went back to the classroom to
- experience different types of delivery
- hear about new methods of engagement
- learn how to measure impact
- take away some fresh ideas to reinvigorate your own sessions.
When and where
- Friday 7th June 2013, City Library, Newcastle.
- Friday 21st June, Booth Lane Campus, Northampton College.
(home of the CoLRiC/Beacon Award Winner 2011/2012).
We were delighted that Sheila Webber ran a workshop on the profile of the information professional at Newcastle and Chris Powis (from the University of Northampton) spoke about teaching skills for information literacy at our Northampton event.
Session presenters included Andrea Wilson, Grazyna Kuczera, Nicola Scott, Sean Mckernan and Abigail Cuthbertson. Sean described transforming his Library and Learning Resources Centre into a Library and Learning Support Centre and Abigail led an interactive session on her work with information literacy and e-safety.
These events also saw the launch of our new Best Practice Awards
These aim to give all Library/Learning Resources Services the chance to shine amongst their peers, celebrating the many innovative practices out there that are making a difference to the lives of students. Further details.
