  • Pedagogy for Librarians

    Monday, 1 June 2015 - 9:00am to Friday, 5 June 2015 - 5:00pm

    Applications are now welcome for an exciting new “Pedagogy for librarians” residential course taking place in June 2015, with places heavily subsidised by the CILIP Information Literacy Group.

    An immersive and intensive five-day course, taking place from  June 1st to 5th, 2015 at Northern College (a former stately home, Wentworth Castle) in South Yorkshire.

    Applications are now welcome from members of the CILIP Information Literacy Group * for this five-day residential course, which aims to give a thorough grounding in the technicalities of teaching for librarians. The course will be delivered by Northern College’s teacher training team, who have a strong belief in the transformative potential of teaching and education with a social purpose. The course will lead to an award of “Level 3 Education and Training” (which replaced PTTLS), a nationally recognised qualification.

    All participants on the course will be expected to stay at Northern College for the full week, and be available for group work and discussion with fellow librarians each evening to help form a continuing community of practice. The course includes an element of written work that all participants will be expected to complete.

    * CILIP members can select the group as one of their Special Interest Group memberships, and non-members of CILIP can join the group for a small fee.
