Description

TeachMeet: Reading for pleasure & reading for academic study


Following our successful inaugural event last year, you are warmly invited to attend the second Library & Academic Study Skills TeachMeet here at Sheffield Hallam University on Tuesday 7th May 2019.

At this free event we will share our ideas, experience and innovative practice. This event is aimed at higher education library staff and academic study skills practitioners working in this region.

Our theme this year will be:

"Reading for pleasure and reading for academic study"


At this event we will consider reading from 2 perspectives:

  • Reading for pleasure - how we encourage the reading of non-academic texts to promote confidence, improve wellbeing, and develop empathy and inclusivity, as well as increasing academic attainment.

  • Academic reading - how we develop the reading of academic texts, looking at the strategies, tools and techniques that we can use to facilitate academic success

There are 3 ticket types:

1. Presenter tickets

5 tickets available

We would like participants to consider delivering a short, informal presentation of up to 15 minutes to fit in with our theme. This could relate to any aspect of reading - for pleasure or for academic purposes.

2. Participant tickets

25 tickets available

We welcome active participants - there will plenty of opportunities to both share your skills and experiences, and to learn from others.

3. SHU Participant tickets

5 tickets available

These tickets are reserved for staff from Sheffield Hallam University.


Remember to book your place early as numbers are strictly limited.

The event is free. Tea and coffee will be provided at the start of the day at 9.30am, for a 10am start. Please bring along a packed lunch to enjoy over lunchtime - or we will point you in the direction of places to get a lovely lunch!

We will be live tweeting the event this year using #SHUTeachmeet and we will once again produce a TeachMeet web site.
