    16. 16. Internal feedback• Useful working with TS staff in terms of better working relationships, understanding more about what each other do.• Team-teaching requires collaboration and can be nerve- inducing, so its quite a bonding project.• Great to have fresh pairs of eyes, different perspective.• AS staff very much benefited from the TS staffs technical know- how for the students who do want that kind of info!• Good opportunity for TS staff to teach which opens up other job/career opportunities.• Opportunity to observe and talk through problems students encountered, as in a technical role like mine, its quite easy to lose touch with the end-user experience.
    17. 17. What could improve• Room booking!• Increased dialogue between the Students‟ Union and the Library• Focus on target audience • Undergraduate • Postgraduate Taught• Timing / assignment of sessions • Knowing which session you‟re delivering well in advance• Overhaul of presentations • New examples / content• Booking form questions • Special requirements
    18. 18. What’s next…• Closer collaboration with the Students‟ Union?• More collaboration internally• Consultation with Technical Services on areas of expertise • E.g. asking about Primo for session planning • E-books • E-journals• More LISTS sessions • E-journals • E-books • Mobile technologies
