The Autumn 2019 event took place at Streatham & Clapham High School on 2nd October where Rachel Evans – Director of Digital Learning & Innovation at Wimbledon High School – gave an inspirational talk about “E-learning & Libraries.
This CPD afternoon was a great chance to network and visit another great library and free to attend.
The speaker discussed old skills re-purposed for a new age and how our approach as librarians is still super-relevant.
She also talked about what skills we need to add for students to use online learning effectively - and challenge of getting them there (research skills for 21st century; plagiarism; evaluating impact and not wasting time; etc.) – mentioning recent action research they have led in her school, Wimbledon High School.
The speaker also touched upon how to get value for money (and this also in sense of time spent by staff - as a finite resource) - data and evaluating impact and reach, and so much more! A very useful CPD event indeed.
Thank you everyone!
