Librarians in Training: Moodle - What It Can Do For Teaching new [Places] 14:00 - 15:30 Department of Engineering, Library

Moodle is being used for all kinds of things at Cambridge, but do you know really what it can do?

From adding content to marking student papers, we will run through the activities and resources that can be used to support teaching in Moodle. The idea being to familiarise library staff with the possibilities and provide some areas of where we can support teaching staff on how to make Moodle work for their teaching practices.

Please come with questions and if there are any particular areas you would like to make sure we cover drop us an email (elj26@cam.ac.uk) as soon as you can and we will do our best to include it.

Librarians in Training: Introduction to LibGuides new [Places] 11:00 - 12:00 Faculty of English, Library IT Training Suite

Making LibGuides which are usable, accessible and look great is not always an easy task, but it definitely can be done! This introductory training will cover everything from the basics – how to add text and images, edit and rearrange content – to presenting content in an effective, usable and attractive way. We’ll also discuss how you can ensure that your LibGuides meet accessibility standards.

This course is particularly aimed at people who are new to LibGuides editing or any current editors who feel that they would benefit from a refresher. If you don’t have a LibGuides account, or access to a LibGuide to work on during the session, please contact the course leader (hem37) in advance so that an account and a training guide can be arranged for you.

Librarians in Training: Using Learning Outcomes to Plan Your Teaching Session new [Places] 10:30 - 12:00 Cambridge University Library, IT Training Room

This session will explain what learning outcomes are and how you might design your teaching session according to different teaching styles e.g. Behaviourist or Constructivist. There will be an opportunity to practice planning a session and to link the content of the session to the Information Literacy Framework using the new CILN teaching template. There will be opportunities to discuss and work in small groups or pairs during the session.

Attendees should try to bring an idea for a session they have delivered, or would like to deliver, to use as an example for the session activities.
