  • VH : Things learnt at CILIP workshop (brief overview c10 mins)We teach 3-5 times too muchWhen planning sessions we need to consider what will make the biggest difference given time limitWe try to clone our expertiseWe can’t distill our own experience into a one hour session. We don’t need to show students how to search databases, but we do need to show them how to appreciate the value of academic resources, search effectively, evaluate the information found and how to use it ethicallyAs librarians we can hinder learning by oversimplification of our expertise into a chainOur role should be one of support and facilitationDiscussion is powerful:Find out how the students already find info, what they already know, what they wantLearn/discover togetherUse open ended questions/problems rather than planning the answer/outcome in advanceWe can learn a lot about student’s understanding from the questions they askLearning by doing is empowering:Encourage active participation through a variety of activities eg. trying things out, getting feedback, solving problems, peer discussion, reflecting on mistakes etcMore effective to have a go than to watch a demo, they can develop own needs and questions about the resourcesHierarchical environment should give way to increased collaboration and interactionUninvolved students are less likely to learnStudents should be learners, not the taught:What they do during the session is more important than what we doOur role to support and facilitateDisciplinarycontext is a key influence on student learning ie. one method does not fit all….with PDE students used time to make them want to use the library, to realise what we have and how they could use it
