  11. 11. The Masterclass
  12. 12. Reflections ‘Co-creating curriculum is an ambiguous process entailing unpredictable aspects’ - Bergmark and Westman (2016, p.37) ‘On a very practical level, collaboration between library staff and students has had its challenges…’ - Library Skills Advisor
  13. 13. Reflections - Structure permitting dialogue - (Freire) ‘I think it would be good next year to ask students to co-decide on workshops perhaps by looking at the queries that come through the Library helpdesk.’ - Staff member
  14. 14. Reflections Active participation in co-creating enables transformation (Bergmark and Westman, 2016) ‘Being a SALT not only has been satisfying in the sense that it has been a proactive way to improve teaching and learning at university, but I have really enjoyed the teamwork and outcomes of our group’ - SALT
  15. 15. Reflections A climate of trust created which allows students to become ‘other’ (a partner in co-creation) and staff to act as learning facilitators respecting the student experience (Bergmark and Westman, 2016) ‘Working with the library staff has been absolutely delightful, I was given both support and responsibility for the workshop we were creating.’ - SALT ‘It was rewarding to be able to contribute to their experience and give feedback, before seeing the finished product of all their hard work’ - Library Skills Advisor
  16. 16. Reflections Teachers as facilitators of learning and feeling out of control (Bergmark and Westman, 2016) ‘They have pushed us, as Library Skills Advisors, to cover new territory in our workshops that we might otherwise have felt was too far out of our traditional information literacy comfort zone.’- Library Skills Advisor
  17. 17. Reflections ‘It’s also easy to forget how intelligent, imaginative and confident our students are and watching the SALTs carry out their project reminded me of this fact.’ - Library Skills Advisor
  18. 18. Implications for practice ● Students can positively disrupt and thereby improve the work of library skills advisors ● The process of collaboration is both troublesome and rewarding ● Listening and being willing to make changes is fundamental to a participatory action research approach
