Supporting Young People in the Digital Information Age Event
Natasha Skeen - Community Liaison Librarian, The Hive, University of Worcester: Supporting KS5 students with public library resources
David Bowles and Simon Finch - Bexley Libraries: This discussion will focus on David and Simon's work with local 6th form EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) students, enabling them to complete their qualification successfully and helping to improve their information literacy.
Elizabeth Bentley - Teen Tech: Elizabeth will focus on the Information Literacy Group's work with Teen Tech, a national STEM and innovation competition aimed at pupils from Yr7-13.
"The rest of the afternoon will be focused on discussion. It can be your chance to talk to others about how you are involved in this area or you can ask for advice from others. You can suggest a topic that you would like to talk about when you book your place or at the beginning of the afternoon or you can just come ready to join in the discussions and be inspired. You can be as brief and as informal as you wish and you definitely don't need to bring a PowerPoint presentation."
Cost is £10 (plus VAT) for CILIP ISG and CILIP ILG members; £15 (plus VAT) for non-ISG or ILG members.
