> 
> 
> 
> The EduLib Project
> 
> Workshop Programme 1999
> 
> Librarians and information services staff have been involved in supporting
> users in 
> seeking and using information since the earliest days of user education.  
> This tradition has been developed and strengthened as the range and
> complexity of 
> delivery systems for information has diversified.  Thus there has perhaps
> never been 
> a greater demand upon the librarian and information specialist to work in 
> educational partnerships to improve performance in teaching, learning and
> research 
> through effective information navigation and management.
> 
> Over 240 library and information staff from over two thirds of UK higher
> education 
> institutions have already participated in EduLib educational workshop
> programmes 
> designed to enhance their educational skills and practice.
> 
> EduLib is committed to extending this development among information
> services and 
> library staff who are keen to establish their user support and training
> roles on a 
> sound educational basis. Following on from the successful workshop
> programmes of the 
> two previous years, the EduLib Project is delighted to announce its
> Workshop 
> Programme for 1999.  
> 
> 
> PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS THE FINAL EDULIB WORKSHOP 
> PROGRAMME AND IT WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE TO ORGANISE ANY 
> FURTHER WORKSHOPS AFTER THIS ACADEMIC YEAR.
> 
> This programme has been devised using feedback received from the recent
> Regional 
> Launch Events held during November and December 1998.  The programme is
> made up of 
> one-off workshops, which may be attended as 'stand alone' events or in any
> 
> combination of the four topics.  The workshops delivered will be based on
> the 
> materials included in the recent publication:
> 
> 
> 
> Teaching for Learning in Libraries and Information Services: a series of
>  educational development workshops
> 
> 
> Edited by David McNamara and Jane Core
> 
> 
>  
> 
> 1999 Workshop programme contents
> 
> The regionally based workshops which will be held in Leeds, Birmingham and
> London 
> will focus on the following areas:
> 
>  Planning a Teaching and Learning Event
>  Teaching Methods
>  Reviewing Learning and Assessment
>  Teaching Observation
> 
> These are the topics most frequently mentioned by librarians as being most
> useful 
> for them and they represent the more practical areas of the EduLib
> progamme.  
> The following information gives intending applicants a broad outline of
> the 
> workshop contents.
> 
> Planning a teaching and learning event
> Whatever the nature of the teaching session, there are a number of
> principles which 
> underpin effective educational planning.  These are described and
> opportunities are 
> provided for participants to engage in practical planning exercises.  The
> model 
> presented is based upon the recognition that the first stage in the
> planning process 
> should be the specification of the learning outcomes which the tutor
> wishes to 
> engender.  Planning then entails sequencing and structuring activities so
> as to 
> promote the nominated learning outcomes and then to obtain feedback on the
> 
> effectiveness of the process.
> 
> Teaching methods
> Teaching takes place in a variety of contexts and there are alternative
> methods 
> and techniques which the library tutor may deploy.  There is a focus upon
> those 
> teaching methods which may enhance the quality of performance in both
> large lectures 
> and presentations and smaller group sessions more characteristic of the
> tutorial 
> or discussion group.
> 
> Reviewing learning and assessment
> All too often librarians teach in circumstances where it is difficult for
> them to 
> gain any feedback about (a) the effectiveness of their own teaching and
> (b) the 
> quality of their students' learning.  This is, in part, because they often
> see 
> students on only one or two occasions and because they do not usually
> assess 
> students' work.  The workshop will introduce methods which librarians may
> use 
> in order to gain feedback on the effectiveness of their own teaching,
> whether it 
> be that of a single session or a fuller programme of sequenced and linked
> teaching 
> sessions.  While it is appreciated that many librarians do not formally
> assess 
> students, it is the case that some do.  Hence participants will also be
> introduced 
> to some of the principles which inform those assessment practices which
> are directed 
> at identifying students' learning and identifying problems.
> 
> Observing teaching 
> Increasingly teaching in higher education institutions is being subject to
> both 
> internal and external scrutiny and, of course, observation is one of the
> effective 
> ways in which to provide feedback and advice which will lead to
> improvements in 
> teaching.  It is important that the library community should be included
> in 
> initiatives which develop the knowledge and expertise which will prepare
> librarians 
> to open up their own teaching to independent scrutiny and also to observe
> teaching 
> themselves.  The workshop aims to help librarians to plan, participate in
> and follow 
> up observations of teaching, whether as observers or observed.  The
> session should 
> provide information and materials which will enable librarians to conduct
> observations in a supportive collegial manner where the aim is to enhance
> the 
> quality of teaching.
> 
> It must be emphasised that it is the process of observation and its value
> in 
> enhancing effectiveness in a peer supported environment that is the focus
> of the 
> workshop.  This is quite distinct from the use of observation for
> appraisal of a 
> member of staff or for informing other formal judgements made about
> performance.
