The CILIP Information Literacy Group is sponsoring a free LibTeachMeet event at the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, on Wednesday, 25th June 2014.
The theme is ‘Information Literacy meets … Employability and Graduate Skills’. The event will focus on how information literacy skills can be taught as part of a wider graduate attribute skills package, specifically to enhance the employability prospects of students. Attendees will explore this theme with other professionals who are working towards similar agendas in their own institutions. By sharing ideas, good practice and expertise, the event is intended to provide a great learning and networking opportunity for all.
The organisers are looking for 5-minute presentations from all sectors about any aspect of employability, including:
- Integration into user education
- Different and innovative approaches to training
- Alignment of online training with graduate attributes
- Examples where information skills have been successfully demonstrated to make a positive impact on students, e.g. looking at relevance, student engagement, feedback and timing.
Alternatively, you can book onto the event as an audience member ready to join the discussion. Visit the event webpage to book a place.

The event will take place on Wednesday, 25th June 2014, 13:30-16:30, in the new Law Court Building on the De Havilland campus in Hatfield. There will also be an optional tour of the De Havilland campus, including the Learning Resource Centre. Refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon.
