Librarians in Training: Backward Design Fri 7 Dec 2018   10:00 Finished
  • Backward design, which uses learning outcomes to determine assessment approaches and course content, is an approach to curriculum design that was developed by Wiggins and McTighe (2008) and plays a vital role within the newly developed ACRL Framework.
  • This hands on workshop will provide participants with an overview of backward design and its pedagogical underpinnings as well as the opportunity to create a backward-designed lesson-plan that can be used as a basis for running a session in their workplace. Focusing on the development of learning outcomes, assessment methods and class content, this workshop is suitable for people looking to get started with teaching as well as for those who are looking to consolidate and strengthen their teaching practices.
  • Alison Hicks is a lecturer in Library and Information Science at UCL. Her research and professional interests lie in the areas of information literacy and information practices as well as in various aspects of academic librarianship.
  • A short interactive session that will focus on hints and tips to help people who Chair meetings do so more effectively.
Librarians in Training: CILIP Chartership - CPD Log new Thu 28 Feb 2019   10:00 [Places]

Recording your professional development activities is a vital part of the Chartership process. This session will demonstrate how to compile a CPD log on the VLE and how this can be transferred to a portfolio for assessment or revalidation. There will then be plenty of time to put this into practice and record your development in the session. 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 - Evidence new Wed 27 Mar 2019   14:30 [Places]

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.

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.

Librarians in Training: CILIP Chartership - The PKSB new Mon 28 Jan 2019   14:30 [Places]

This session will focus on the PKSB (Professional Knowledge and Skills Base) which is the first step for many in building a Chartership portfolio. A brief introduction to how to use the CILIP assessment tool will be followed by a chance to work through it, better understand your individual skill level and how to use the document to build your portfolio. 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: Critical Reading Fri 1 Feb 2019   10:30 [Places]

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.

Instructors: Sam Aston and Michael Stevenson

  • Decolonising knowledge is one of the hot topics of the moment, stirring up universities as well as the media. How can we approach this fundamental and much needed change in our libraries while still dealing with our daily workloads?
  • Join us to hear diverse perspectives: Eve Lacey (Newnham College), David Rushmer (English Faculty Library), Mehves Dignum (Engineering Faculty Library) and Clara Panozzo (Collections and Academic Liaison, University Library) will share their thoughts and experiences.
  • This will be followed by a workshop and an open discussion (with tea and biscuits in the middle!).
  • Have you started an application for HEA fellowship but have no time to write?

Would you like a day to work on your application with no disruptions?

  • Alternatively, have you heard about HEA Fellowship and are considering applying? Are you curious about the benefits of Fellowship and which level (AFHEA, FHEA, SFHEA) best suits your experience? Would you like help brainstorming evidence for your application?
  • On 10 December, Librarians in Training are sponsoring a day-long writing retreat to work on applications for HEA fellowship. Come be in a room with others experiencing the same pain and just write. We will have writing sprints of about an hour and then a short break. Repeat until the end of the day!
  • The retreat will be held at the Institute for Manufacturing on the West Cambridge site in a lovely seminar room with lots of natural light. Coffee/tea/biscuits and will be served in the morning and afternoon (but you’ll need to bring your own lunch or purchase food in the common room or in a nearby café).
  • The IfM is large, so if you’d like to discuss HEA fellowship generally or brainstorm aspects of it, we can easily meet up in the common room. Or if there is interest from everyone at the beginning of the day for a short plenary session, we can do that as well.
  • You can sign up for just a half-day or both the morning and afternoon sessions. Numbers are limited to 10 people per session.
  • You will need to bring your own laptop. Please come a bit early so that we can start at 1.00pm sharp. If you need to arrive later, that is fine. Just please tip toe in and get set up quietly.

Can’t come on December 10th? There will be two more writing retreats for HEA applications in 2019: 22 March and 21 June. Bookings for those sessions will open approximately a month before the date.
