We’ve recently been collating a series of case studies that outline different approaches taken to delivering information literacy teaching online, and are delighted to announce an accompanying TeachMeet event where you can both hear from several of the contributors and share your ideas with others.
Join the Information Literacy Group for a free online session where a range of practitioners will share their experiences of shifting their information literacy teaching online.
The TeachMeet will take place online on Friday, September 18th, 2020, 2-4pm BST, and bookings are being taken now for this free event.
More contributors welcome
Several of the event speakers have kindly provided case studies for the Information Literacy website over the summer, but there are also a limited number of short speaker slots available (5-10 minutes) for anyone else who is willing to share their experiences of shifting quickly to online teaching. Everyone’s experience is valued and can be useful in helping others – don’t feel you need to be an “expert” to share. Details on how to volunteer for a speaker slot are available on the event webpage.
There will also be opportunities for all attendees to have input at different stages of the event.
