Teachmeet at Aston University: Information literacy and academic study skills.

Information literacy and academic study skills; an informal discussion of the crossover and benefits of collaboration.

Wednesday 6th June 2018 1-4pm

Teaching is increasingly a part of an academic librarian’s role and the crossover between information literacy and academic study skills can become blurred. The way in which this is organised in institutions differs greatly and one of the aims of this teachmeet is to explore the options and what works best.

We are looking for 6 presenters to give short 15 minutes talks. We would be interested in hearing about;

  • How information literacy and academic study skills are provided within your institution. Are they separate teams or one department? What benefits/disadvantages does this bring?
  • Instances of collaboration and crossover between teams.
  • How to differentiate between students eg UG, PG, researcher?
  • Innovative uses of library space in the provision of IL or study skills.

We are also looking for enthusiastic audience members that are willing to join in the discussion. It’s a free and informal event and there will be time for networking over tea, coffee and biscuits.


  • Explore and discuss the different approaches to information and study skills in the sector.
  • Explore instances of collaboration and inspire attendees.
  • Examine the issues around providing support to students of different levels eg UG, PG and researcher.
  • Share good practice.
