  • Triads have been formed and have engaged in reflective consideration of the framework.

    Learning Philosophies workshops run and Learning philosophies written up and shared between members

    Reflective workshops have been run Jenny Moon and Professor Sheila Corrall

  • Introduction: Graduated from UCD August 2016. Currently in DkIT as a Library Assistant. I Believe L2L has already impacted my career in ways I do not realise. 
     
    Perception: (L2L) Adds another layer. Provides opportunities to expand skill base. CPD easily accessible and recurrent. 
     
    Teaching: IL a big part of what Library Staff do daily. Little accredited training for this. Having access to PD can enhance employment prospects for new professionals. Thankful for support in terms of seminars/workshops. 
     
    Networking: Inclusivity & collaboration. Project allows for ample networking opportunities. 
     
    C.E.L.T: Before L2L never would have considered teaching certificate. I see now how it goes hand in hand with what I do. Biggest example of my change in perception of Librarian Identity.
