Bursary places: ILG’s Game-based Learning for Information Literacy Teaching

  • Name
  • Contact details
  • Sector

Your application should also:

  • Reflect on what you think will be the specific benefits/knowledge that you hope to gain from attending the event
  • Explain why you need funding and/or your institution cannot pay for you to attend the event
  • Let us know if you have attended CILIP or ILG events previously.

Please note that, as part of the funding conditions, you will need to promote the sponsorship of the CILIP Information Literacy Group and produce a report for the group within two months of the event. This will be published on the Information Literacy Group blog.
