Description

Collaboration and Development

The academic skills team at LJMU has recently moved into library services, and as a consequence is developing its working practices through collaboration with library professionals. We are also maintaining and developing links with the university’s academic departments, Student Advice and Wellbeing department, Teaching and Learning Academy and Student Union, and would like to foster wider collaborative networks to facilitate ongoing development and collegial support of academic skills delivery at the university.

This teachmeet is intended to bring together academic skills practitioners who work across both institutional and organisational boundaries to improve and develop their services and practices. Towards this aim, we are hosting presentations, demonstrations and discussions on the broad theme of collaborating and developing academic skills services and practices.

Contributors will be sharing their experience of:

  • Working with academic departments to embed skills in the curriculum
  • Collaborating with professional services, student groups, or external bodies to develop sessions or learning materials
  • Using technology (collaborative or otherwise) to develop academic skills
  • The difficulties of measuring impact when working collaboratively

However, other ideas or sharing of practice on academic skills will also be discussed so please also come along with examples of your experience to date. Staff wishing to learn what is going on in member libraries, who maybe don't have as much experience to share, are also welcome to attend.

Suggestions for round-table discussions would be welcome.
