Librarians in Training: Critical Reading [Places] 10:30 - 12:30 Cambridge University Library, Milstein Room

In this workshop, you will take a tour of one of the most popular My Learning Essentials Workshop at Manchester University, Critical Reading. With the help of a narrator and facilitator you will see both sides of the workshop looking glass, that of a student and that of a workshop developer. As a student you will develop key skills for effective critical reading. You will learn and practice techniques to help you identify key points and main ideas and gain an understanding about what is required to read critically. There will also be opportunities to discuss strategies for making connections between different articles, journals or other materials in order to aid understanding. As a developer you will hear about the research that underpins the content of the workshop.

Librarians in Training: CILIP Chartership - Evidence new [Places] 14:30 - 16:30 Cambridge University Library, Milstein Room

Chartership portfolios rely on candidates displaying a range of evidence of their development but it can be hard to know where to start. What counts as evidence? How many pieces can I include? How do I choose what to include in my submission? This session will answer these questions and offer attendees tips, tricks and the chance to work on compiling their evidence. You are also more than welcome to just use the session for as a quiet time to get some work done on whichever aspect of your Chartership portfolio you choose.

Librarians in Training: CILIP Chartership - Reflective Writing new [Places] 10:00 - 12:00 Cambridge University Library, Milstein Room

In order to be successful all Chartership portfolios must include a reflective statement linking together the record of professional development and the evidence. Most submissions fail as they are too descriptive rather than reflecting on experiences and this can be daunting to those not used to producing reflective writing. This session will offer some tips and tricks to get you started as well as how to add more reflection to your portfolio and then offer attendees a chance to put this into practice. You are also more than welcome to just use the session for as a quiet time to get some work done on whichever aspect of your Chartership portfolio you choose.
