Library TeachMeet

This Teachmeet is an opportunity to boost your creativity just in time for the new term. It’s an informal flexible day led by the participants. Your input is invaluable! We’re looking to hear about your teaching experiences in any type of library or information setting. It could be a new teaching activity, or even an old one that really works well. Perhaps you’ve done some research or gathered some useful feedback about your teaching. Or you’ve started a new venture and have lessons to share.

    Britannia Royal Naval College has been the site of officer training for the Royal Navy for over a century. Built upon the design of a public school it now delivers modern military training in an environment that honours the traditions and ethos of the Royal Navy. The College is an extremely imposing Edwardian building overlooking the town of Dartmouth.
