UAL sets the standard for teaching and learning development for academic support librarians

_DSC1205LRElizabeth Staddon from the Teaching and Learning Exchange and Leo Appleton from Library Services travelled to Dublin on the 22nd March to present at the esteemed LILAC conference on a new teaching and learning programme especially designed for library staff. They reported on the development, delivery and evaluation of a course that was first piloted in Spring 2015 to introduce librarians involved in teaching to some of the main features of art and design pedagogy for library based academic support.

The paper was very well received by colleagues from across the sector, who were impressed by UAL’s strategy to establish development opportunities for all its staff with a teaching and learning support role, and by the close working relationship between Library Services and the Teaching and Learning Exchange to deliver such a motivational programme. Elizabeth and Leo are now keen to build on this early success to ensure that academic support librarians and others with a teaching and learning support role can continue to develop and be recognized for their expertise.
