Description: "Are you feeling off-balance? Overworked and underfunded? How can you keep up with all of your responsibilities, not to mention new technologies, apps, mobile environments, and social networking, when email alone takes up hours of time, while budgets, staff and open hours are cut, and class sizes keep getting bigger? How can you tell if what you are doing is effective when you have no time for reflection, and no time to develop assessment instruments, analyze the results, and make revisions? Collaborative partnerships, small and large, could help! Get insight into your institution's current partnership level, as well as ideas for expanding existing partnerships or developing new ones within and beyond your institution. Learn about big and little dreams of partners and partnerships, and how you can jump in to make it happen."

Esther's presentation will be in voice, with discussion in text chat.
Part of the Centre for Information Literacy Research series on Infolit iSchool, home of Sheffield University's iSchool in Second Life
