Developing new skills and adapting to new learning environments is essential for increasing levels of information literacy amongst library users. Delegates on this one-day participative course will build on current experiences of teaching information skills in libraries and learning centres. Divided into five sessions, they will look firstly at the nature of teaching and learning before considering each step of the process – planning, delivering, assessing and receiving feedback. Delegates will be involved with stimulating discussions and there will be the opportunity to share experiences so if you are working with young people, students, small groups of library users or staff this course will help you develop your skills as a teacher and trainer.
