Teachmeet: #Reading for pleasure and reading for academic study #infolit #libteachmeet

There will be a free Library & Academic Study Skills TeachMeet at Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK, on Tuesday 7 May 2019. The theme is Reading for pleasure and reading for academic study. Deadline for proposals for presenting is 29 March 2019 (2 tickets only remaining at the moment). They are looking at reading from 2 perspectives: "(1) Reading for pleasure - how we encourage the reading of non-academic texts to promote confidence, improve wellbeing, and develop empathy and inclusivity, as well as increasing academic attainment. (2) Academic reading - how we develop the reading of academic texts, looking at the strategies, tools and techniques that we can use to facilitate academic success" "At this free event we will share our ideas, experience and innovative practice. This TeachMeet is aimed at higher education library staff and academic study skills practitioners working in this region. To register (as presenter or audience) go to
