Reading corner

Considering a "reading corner" for the Huddersfield Librarian Teachmeet. Set off thinking about this by an article I came across the other day in Library and Information Research on Academic Librarians learning to teach.

Not sure how to run it - perhaps ask for suggestions beforehand and try and pull together a set of books / articles for people to flick through on the day? That'd have to go together with an online list that everyone can access and preferably leave comments / additions on.

Will pull something together over the next few weeks...

Event just announced!

We're holding a Librarian TeachMeet in Huddersfield on 9th Feb 2011.

This will be a really informal opportunity for librarians who teach to get together to share tips and experiences.

If you come, be prepared to give a short (5 mins at most) talk to share an aspect of your teaching. There will be "speed dating" to share tips and a "lucky dip" of teaching goodies to rummage through for inspiration.

The free event will be held at the University of Huddersfield from 14:00 to 16:30 on Wednesday 9th Feb. More details will appear on this blog as and when we decide them!

Please email if you'd like to attend.
