  12. 12. Developing a framework
  13. 13. Embedding in the curriculum
  14. 14. The SADL project • Collaborative Project: Library, Centre for Learning Technology (CLT), Teaching and Learning Centre, Student Union, IT Training • Engagement with 2 academic departments: Statistics and Social Policy • Recruited 20 students to attend 4 workshops
  15. 15. Recruitment and rewards
  16. 16. How do you approach an assignment? Workshop 2: reading and writing in your discipline?
  17. 17. Workshop 3: Managing and sharing information How do you keep up to date, manage, store and cite your information?
  18. 18. Emerging findings and observations • Challenges any assumptions and generalisations about students as they are all different and have developed different strategies for study  Contrasts between disciplines - Statistics students don’t tend to use Library resources - Social Policy students read extensively  Sharing – cautious about where and how  Enthusiasm for engagement / involvement in a support role is boundless – untapped resource
  19. 19. Lessons learnt  Role: requires clear expectations  Developing relationships takes time  Workshops require:  Defined aims and objectives  A lot of preparation time  Appropriate learning space  Platform for students to share ideas?  Expected greater engagement with the blog  Exploring alternatives – Facebook Group, Moodle, Padlet  Increase publicity outside project to academic departments and other students to gain momentum
